Human Resources

The Human Resource Department’s mission is to enhance the value and productivity of the City’s most valuable assets (our employees) through effective human resource practices. We provide our internal customers with a myriad of personnel and career related services including but not limited to: recruitment and selection; compensation and benefits administration; training and development; employee education programs; counseling and corrective performance activities; performance management, and employee recognition.

Our role is an active one. Supervisory and managerial staff receive ongoing training and counseling regarding human resource practices. This provides a solid foundation and comprehensive approach to the management of our employees. Employee interaction is valued and emphasized through the use of employee committees. These committees focus on improvement recommendations to the organization and human resource program.

Our services are designed to attract and retain a highly talented, committed, and diverse workforce. Employment opportunities within the City of Golden are updated weekly and are available through the following resources:
