The Dougherty County Human Resources Department handles all of the applicant services for individuals seeking employment opportunities with the County. In addition, the department is responsible for the delivery of a full range of personnel services for approximately 650 employees.
The Job Information/Recruitment function provides for internal as well as external access to job vacancy information. In instances of hard-to-fill categories, there are specialized recruitment activities designed specifically for the needs of the department with the vacancy. Included in the job information/recruitment function are the equal employment opportunity provisions and the affirmative action efforts.
The Classification/Compensation function provides for an equitable system of classifying positions within the county system. To ensure a fair system of compensation each job is evaluated on the basis of external as well as internal worth. To promote greater objectivity in this process, the department utilizes the services of personnel consultants from the Regional Development Center at Camilla, and private sources.
The Benefits Information/Administration function provides for an up-to-date review of the benefits offered through county employment. Through new employee orientation sessions and employee updates, individuals are given the opportunity to receive information on those benefits that directly affect them. Included in the benefits package are: Health, Life, & AD&D Insurance, Retirement Plan, Deferred Compensation, Annual Leave, Sick Leave, Long Term Disability, Merit Increases, Dental Plan, Workers' Compensation, Credit Union, and a Sick Leave Bank.
The Training/Safety function allows for an opportunity for professional and personal development. Using in-house personnel and outside consultants, training offers a wide variety of developmental activities which are geared toward preparing county employees for the challenges of the future. With an eye toward risk management and cost containment, the safety process alerts managers and employees to simple, yet potentially costly areas often overlooked in day-to-day operations.
The Employee/Employer Relations function addresses the need for open and honest communication and assists both supervisor and employee in facilitating a better understanding of workplace relationship. The overall goal is to foster a "team-work" attitude which allows for input at every level and appropriate recognition and reward for that input.
