The Hays County Human Resources Department is privileged to be responsible for a wide range of county activities involving our employees, applicants and citizens.

Our office is dedicated to providing services for the recruitment of qualified individuals, retention of valuable employees and training to promote individual success and organizational value. We are committed to help provide a safe and healthful working environment as well as supporting, maintaining and administering a competitive compensation and benefit package. Along with other county leaders, our staff of HR professionals assist in the development of county wide policies and procedures and effective communication. This is accomplished with the support of our Commissioners Court and partnering with other elected officials and department heads.

It is our goal to support our county’s principles, values, vision and mission and to support the total operation in meeting its goals through its most valuable resource - its PEOPLE.
