Greeley’s next Human Resources Director - who will have the opportunity to become an integral part of a transforming organization serving one of the fastest growing communities in the United States - will lead the department in pursuit of the City’s vision of a city achieving community excellence and support the organization in realizing its values of Applied Wisdom, Excellence, Accountability, Stewardship, Principled Relationships and Integrity.
The Human Resources Director will play a key role in modeling leadership and strategic planning in the implementation of organizational development, department programs, functions and activities to ensure alignment with City goals. Having recently undergone an operational and organizational assessment, the Department is poised to be formed to serve as a strategic partner to the City Manager and departments to meet City and Council objectives as they relate to employees, culture, productivity and being an employer of choice. Under the leadership of a new Director, the Human Resources Department is intended to support City departments in maximizing mission critical focuses through recruitment, retention, performance management, innovative solutions, total compensation, information systems, employee and bargaining-unit relations, and training and development.
The Human Resources Department has an adopted 2020 budget of $20.7 million (of which $15.36 million is associated with claims funds) and 11 full-time equivalent positions. Funding has been set aside to enable the addition of employees identified as a result of the department assessment. The Human Resource Director, who is appointed and removed by the City Manager, receives day to day supervision and guidance from an Assistant City Manager.
