Program Authorization: La. Constitution, Article X

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

The mission of the Human Resource Management Program is to promote effective human resource management throughout state government by developing and implementing systems for job evaluation, pay, employment, promotion and personnel management and by administering these systems through rules, policies, and practices that encourage wise utilization of the state's financial and human resources.

The goals of the Human Resource Management Program are:

  1. Improve the classification and compensation systems through the development and implementation of flexible job evaluation and pay policies and practices that can be adapted to meet agencies' unique requirements.
  2. Create and administer programs, rules, and procedures that promote effectiveness and accountability in state agencies and their employees.
  3. Provide hiring and promotion processes to make qualified candidates available for timely employment and promotion decision for state managers.
  4. Develop the capabilities of agency supervisors and human resource managers to assume greater responsibilities over the management of human resources through training and other activities.

The Human Resource Management Program includes the following activities: Personnel Management, Classification and Pay, and Examining Divisions.

OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS

Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indicators are made up of two parts: name and value. The indicator name describes what is being measured. The indicator value is the numeric value or level achieved within a given measurement period. For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).
