HR Practitioner Development

OFM State Human Resources, DES Workforce Support and Development, and agency / institution HR Offices all share a collective interest in effectively managing and growing the state's HR practitioner community. To that end, the HR Development Governance Committe has worked with HR leaders and practitioners across the state to develop an HR practitioner competency framework  and resources. The goals of this effort are to:

  • Assist agency leaders in recruiting, managing, and developing  world-class HR practitioners
  • Inform and advise HR practitioners on how to build their skills and grow their careers
  • Focus the development of enterprise resources for HR practitioner training and development
