Nevada County Recognized as an HRD Innovative HR Team in 2022

2022 Innovative HR Teams

Nevada County Human Resources was named as one of twenty-nine most innovative teams in the US by Human Resources Director (HRD). HRD is reviewed over 2,800 submissions from across the United States to determine the most influential and innovative HR offices in the Nation. Human Resources' submission was ranked based on HRD’s Innovative HR Teams 2022 report which recognizes firms that are breaking boundaries to move the HR profession forward in what has been a tumultuous year.  Whether it’s by taking a progressive approach to recruitment, introducing new technology, or rolling out a ground-breaking reward and recognition strategy.  

The Nevada County Human Resources team  had a banner year in 2021, being recognized by the Department of Labor as one 17 companies who are leading the way in recruiting, hiring and retaining a veteran workforce by being awarded a Platinum HIREVETS Medallion personally by the Secretary of Labor Martin Walsh.  The team was also awarded the coveted California State Association of Counties (CSAC) Challenge Award for their innovative internship program.  The International City/County Management Association (ICMA) has recognized Nevada County for their innovative Reduced Time to Hire (RTTH) program which has developed a process to hire new employees in less than 60 days down from 135. The Nevada County team is presenting their RTTH program in September at the ICMA international conference in Ohio. 

Nevada County's Human Resources team developed a new strategy in 2020, called HR 2020, where they began a complete transformation of HR operations, one of the components of that initiative was to become the best HR office in California. To-date, Nevada County Human Resources has received one State award and two National awards, and plans to continue to innovate and work towards their goal of being the best of the best.
