The seventh largest city in the state of California, Long Beach employs more than 6,000 full and part-time personnel in 22 departments and offices throughout the City. We believe that the City's greatest assets are its employees, and we take great pride in managing the systems that support a highly productive, innovative, caring, and customer-oriented workforce.

Our mission is: To provide leadership and operational support to City departments to enhance their ability to recruit and retain a qualified, diverse workforce and to effectively manage business risks.

We take this mission very seriously. Moving beyond the traditional role of personnel management, my staff and I are striving to create a collaborative environment that rewards creativity and outstanding performance. We are committed to being strategic partners with all City departments to ensure that the City has the talent and resources needed to provide great services to the community.

Please take a moment to explore some of our service areas, including labor relations, classification and compensation, employee benefits, equal employment opportunities, and risk management, as well as explore employment opportunities with the City.
