A Message from the Human Resources Manager

Welcome to the City of Rancho Palos Verdes Human Resources Department website. The mission of Human Resources is to deliver the highest quality of customer service with timely services to both internal and external customers and to provide leadership in all personnel and employment matters.  We accomplish this by promoting the principles of fairness, values and partnering with the City's departments to hire, compensate, support and develop a workforce dedicated to delivering high-quality services to the residents of and visitors to the City of Rancho Palos Verdes. 

Through the administration of the City’s sole labor contract or Memorandum of Understanding, we encourage effective working relationships with the City's employee association.  Through our risk management practices, we promote safety and good practices to limit liability costs.  We have established high recruitment and selection standards, with the goal of ensuring a highly qualified workforce.  

Human Resources is also responsible for administering employee benefits and workers' compensation and coordinating classification and compensation efforts, training & development activities and employee relations programs.  We promote a "customer first" attitude by demonstrating a spirit of cooperation and by being a trusted and valued source of human resources knowledge and expertise.

The Human Resources Department is proud to support the employees and the residents of Rancho Palos Verdes. The website provides lots of information about the functions of Human Resources, but if you need additional information, please contact me or any human resources staff member for assistance.
