Human Resources serves over 2,600 employees in a community of over 250,000 citizens.

There are five distinct divisions within the Human Resources Department.  The mission and vision statements of each division drive our operations and the execution of work.  Human Resources’ missions and visions are highlighted above.

Human Resources has a very keen focus on employee relations and strives to provide a workplace in which our employees can thrive, grow, and be proud to be a part of.

Simply stated, Clayton County Board of Commissioners supports a policy of nondiscrimination in all phases of the employment life cycle, which starts at the employment application stage and ends at retirement.   Human Resources enlists all EEO laws (federal, state, and local), Civil Service Rules and Regulations, and leadership best practices to guide our approach to human resources management.

The Civil Service Act created a system of personnel administration for Clayton County Board of Commissioners.  Civil Service protected employees are provided due process under the Civil Service System.  New full-time employees hired in Civil Service positions must serve a 12-month probationary period before obtaining Civil Service Status.  Some public safety employees serve an 18-month probationary period.
