Employer of Choice Committee

The Employer of Choice Committee serves as the state’s HR Employer of Choice advisory and coordinating group. The committee works collaboratively with the HR community, OFM State HR, DES Workforce Support and Development, and agency HR offices to support strategic efforts across state government to become an employer of choice.


The Committee provides HR leadership in state government’s effort to become an employer of choice. It will provide feedback and input, develop recommendations, and make decisions on employer of choice strategies.
