The Human Resources Department partners with management to create and maintain a talented, qualified workforce by recruiting a diverse applicant pool, by facilitating the fair merit-based selection for appointment of the most qualified candidates, by developing appropriate workforce training (in consultation with the Judicial Institute), by fostering positive management-employee relations, by promptly addressing workplace issues, and by developing performance based measures to ensure the continued excellence of the workforce. The Human Resources Department will use best practices to ensure that this collaborative effort advances the mission of the Trial Court.  The HR Department also provides information and assistance to all Trial Court employees on a variety of work place issues.
