Welcome to the City of Sherwood
Human Resources Department

Our Mission

The Office of Human Resources is responsible for a comprehensive human resource program, including: employment and orientation services; retirement processing; administration of employee benefits; policy development and administration; job classification, compensation and labor market research; employee relations; recruitment of qualified applicants into an inclusive and diverse workforce; worker's compensation, employee assistance programs; maintenance of personnel records; maintenance of the City's personnel database, and the administration of performance evaluation programs and the employee grievance process. Human Resources is committed to providing high quality service to all prospective, current and past employees.  We are also committed to treating everyone with respect, care and the concern they deserve.  This sort of attention will occur from their first inquiries about position vacancies, services and programs, all the way through to retirement. By making this commitment to the employees, Human Resources will be able to maintain its high level of mutual trust and respect.

Inclusion and Diversity

The City of Sherwood is an Equal Employment Opportunity employer.  This means that our policies are designed to safeguard our employees and job applicants from discrimination because of their race, color, religion, sex (including gender identity, sexual orientation, and pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. These protections extend to all management practices and decisions, including recruitment and hiring, appraisal systems, promotions, training, and career development programs. Consistent with these obligations, the City of Sherwood also provides reasonable accommodations to employees and applicants with disabilities. 

Because we are all about people, we think our values should represent that.
