Description of Occupational Work

This class series uses eight levels of work in the Administrative Services occupational group, Human Resource Management occupational series and describes analytical and consultative work that supports the development, management and implementation of one or more of the following human resource functions at the State level:  classification, compensation, talent acquisition, employee relations, pension, benefits, and diversity and inclusion.  State level encompasses or impacts operations of Agencies across all branches of State Government, and may also include schools, counties and municipalities.  

Analytical and consultative work performed by employees in this class series is characterized by the application of human resource theories, principles and models to support the administration of human resource functions at the State level; as well as the use of knowledge, discretion, consultation, innovative thinking, problem solving and independent judgment to provide technical guidance and resolve challenges with broad ramifications, while ensuring appropriate and consistent interpretation of and compliance with laws, rules, regulations, standards, policies and procedures.  Employees research and analyze a variety of data and information, and review best practices, precedents, or changes, to make recommendations.  Core human resource competencies utilized by this class series include human resource expertise, business acumen, consultation, critical thinking, problem solving, evaluation, communication and relationship building.  Employees in this class series must maintain confidentiality for all human resource related services.

Note:  The career ladder incorporates State Human Resource Analyst levels I, II III and IV; therefore, all positions allocated into the State Human Resource Analyst career ladder are classified at the IV level (highest level in the career ladder).  The State Human Resource Analyst I level is to provide entry for hiring new employees into the class series but does not preclude hiring new employees at higher levels.  To implement the career ladder, current employees are assigned to the level for which they meet job requirements and promotional standards.  Advancement of employees through the career ladder is dependent on operational needs and distribution of work.

The State Human Resource Supervisor, State Human Resource Manager I, State Human Resource Manager II, and State Human Resource Administrator, although not part of the career ladder, provide competitive opportunity for movement of employees.
