Statewide Recruitment

CalHR Statewide Recruitment assists departments by coordinating and standardizing guidelines and best practices for the key elements of recruitment by focusing on building talent pipelines to attract the best and brightest from higher education institutions, underrepresented communities and the private sector into state government.  An effective recruiting strategy hinges on becoming an employer of choice. This means creating greater awareness of the public service experience that state government offers – awareness that needs to be expanded both inside government and in the talent marketplace. 

​Statutes for Statewide Recruitment

Eligible lists are created on the basis of merit and fitness, and, as such, shall result from recruitment strategies designed to be as broad and inclusive as necessary to best meet the selection need (Cal. Code Regs., tit. 2, § 250).

All agencies shall engage in general recruitment and outreach programs to all individuals, including persons who are economically disadvantaged.  California Government Code allows public sector employers to conduct outreach efforts with a recruitment goal to supplement word-of-mouth recruitment that should result in increasing diversity of the workforce (Gov. Code, §11139.6, subds. (3), (d), added by Stats. 2002). 

Mission

The CalHR Statewide Workforce Planning and Recruitment Unit is committed to building a quality sustainable workforce for the State of California.
