DHR’s Mission is to use fair and equitable practices to hire, develop, support, and retain a highly-qualified workforce. Our Vision is of empowered and diverse employees delivering excellent services to our communities through innovation, collaboration, and human-centered values.
DHR’s budget includes the salaries, expenses, rent, equipment, and all other costs needed to support our Divisions: Administration; Class & Compensation; Client Services; Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion; Employee Relations; Equal Employment Opportunities & Leaves; Policy; and Workers’ Compensation. DHR’s two-year base budget (prior to budget process changes) is $112 million for FY 2021-22 and $113 million for FY 2022-23. It is worth noting that the Workers’ Compensation Division, whose work is legally mandated, comprises 73% of DHR’s budget; the bulk of the Workers’ Compensation’s budget is payments to injured employees and medical providers.
Due to the City’s current economic challenges, all departments, including DHR, have been asked to propose significant reductions in the FY 2021-22 and FY 2022-23 budget. At this time, and in compliance with the City’s budget transparency requirements, we are accepting recommendations on DHR’s two-year FY 2021-22 & FY 2022-23 Budget. Where could we look for savings? Do you have suggestions for efficiencies? We will be accepting ideas through February 12.
