The mission of the Human Resources Unit (HR) is to provide leadership and services supporting employee and organizational success. The unit is responsible for HR functions, including organizational and employee development, employment, compensation and benefits and employee relations for the Department of Environmental Services. HR works in close partnership with the NH Division of Personnel on state-wide initiatives to embrace the adoption of best practices, expand the level of collaboration within HR among state agencies and more fully integrate HR as a business partner. The unit conducts all business with a commitment to honoring its guiding principles.
We will have an understanding of the business we are in, our customers’ needs, and the public’s interests. Our ability to successfully design and integrate meaningful business practices is dependent upon this.
We will make every effort to attract the best people to DES, and adopt the use of best practices in our business processes and approaches to staff development.
We will conduct business in the highest ethical and professional manner.
We will treat each individual with respect, and consider all relevant information to assure fair and sound decisions are reached.
We are committed to a philosophy of continuous improvement, and will work collaboratively with others to reach individual and collective goals.
