Westchester County strives to promote professionalism and superior customer service throughout its workforce. The Department of Human Resources has utilized best practices in management, technology and the out-of-the-box thinking needed to facilitate innovative solutions that enhance the services we provide the public, our county departments and 121 local government agencies under the commissioner’s jurisdiction.

Our civil service recruitment and selection team serves over 10,000 candidates annually to ensure Westchester taxpayers have a talented, diverse workforce able to meet the needs of a growing County now and in the future. As required by law, we maintain detailed employment records for more than 30,000 employees of Westchester County, Westchester Medical Center, and 121 cities, towns, villages, schools and fire districts, and conduct 2,500 pre-employment background checks annually. 

The Department of Human Resources and its staff of 45 professionals have implemented myriad programs including an online performance appraisal system, a state-of-the-art civil service examination management system, a countywide Telework Program, a comprehensive decentralized continuous recruitment testing program, automated workflow approval processes as well as re-engineering civil service administration. This has resulted in significant improvements in customer service and civil service administration, putting Westchester County on the map as a place of best practices in many areas, as indicated time and again by New York State oversight agencies.

Westchester County Human Resources will continue to meet its statutory mandates while never losing the personal touch so important in helping individuals reach their professional goals and supporting their career advancement in a dynamic, healthy environment.
