HRO provides services and support to its customers in the program areas of employee training development, employee relations, labor relations, recruitment, staffing, placement, classification, compensation and equal employment opportunity.
Because more than 80 percent of the base's personnel are civilian employees, the Human Resources Office plays a vital role in advising and assisting managers and supervisors to recruit, reward, motivate, properly pay, develop and retain quality workers and to promote equal employment opportunities for all.
The Federal Employment Program is based on public law, Presidential Order and regulations issued by the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. The base's HRO not only advises management officials in operating a proper personnel program but also offers information in response to inquiries from employees and the general public about employment opportunities in the Federal Service.
The Human Resources Office provides advisory service to managers, supervisors and employees on the following program areas: compensation, labor relations, employee relations, position classification, staffing, training and employee development. Functions include recruitment and placement, pay, benefits, workers' compensation, leave administration, recognition/awards, conduct, performance, affirmative employment programs, labor management relationships, contract administration, position management; determine occupational categories and grade levels for pay purposes; determine eligibility and qualifications for positions; refer candidates for vacancies; administer the Merit Promotion Program; recruit locally under the Navy Career Intern Program and the Student Experience Programs (temporary and permanent); and manage and promote effective use of the Defense Civilian Personnel Data System.
