DHR Organizational Structure (PDF)
The Department of Human Resources (DHR) is organized into the following broad functional areas: Employment Services; Employee Relations; Equal Employment Opportunity; Workers’ Compensation; Workforce Development and Training; Finance and Budget; and Administration and Information System Services. Each of these functional areas provides a broad scope of human resources services that support the Department’s mission.
Employment Services includes the Recruitment and Assessment Services team, the Client Service team, the Classification and Compensation team, and the Employment Information Services team. Collectively, these teams provide human resources consultation and direct services in all operational areas of the City’s human resources programs. They are also responsible for ensuring equal employment opportunity and the application of merit system principles.
Employee Relations negotiates and administers the provisions of collective bargaining agreements between the City and County of San Francisco and the labor organizations that represent city employees, and engages in legally-required meet and confer processes regarding issues within the scope of representation. Employee Relations staff advise departmental personnel representatives in the interpretation of contractual provisions, manage and review all grievances related to contract interpretation/application and disciplinary actions, and evaluate bargaining unit assignments for city classifications.
Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) provides professional consultation to applicants, employees and departments in the areas of equal employment opportunity, employment discrimination and harassment, and accommodation of persons with disabilities. EEO staff also trains supervisors and managers to prevent workplace harassment, and implements investigation and alternative dispute resolution of harassment and employment discrimination complaints.
Workers’ Compensation administers benefits related to industrial injuries and illnesses in compliance with state and local laws and regulations; coordinates citywide safety and prevention efforts; and facilitates return-to-work programs.
Workforce Development and Training implements citywide training and organizational development programs; manages succession planning programs; and designs and implements internship and apprenticeship programs.
