Welcome from the Director of Human Resources
I would like to welcome you to the Pope County Human Resources web site.
We look forward to serving as we work together, to make a difference in the lives and careers of our county employees.
The county is a very diverse place to work; our goal is to provide applicants, workers, managers, and administration with ethical human resources principles and practices that contribute to an effective work force of Pope county government operations.

Human Resources Mission
Human Resources will always strive to create, encourage, and maintain an environment that supports, develops and sustains the wellbeing of Pope County employees, while partnering with Pope County business units, to maximize the potential of our greatest asset- our employees. We do this by being a knowledgeable, approachable, professional resource in providing quality services in the areas of employee relations, benefits, recruitment and retention, organizational development, compensation, employment laws, and human resource information management. We develop and communicate sound policies and procedures that balance the needs of employees and the needs of the county, while ensuring compliance with federal and state law. We provide strategic leadership, modeling excellence, honesty, integrity, and teamwork. We deliver our services in support of Pope County’s mission of excellence, leadership, and community service.

We will seek to implement human resource best practices and innovative human resource solutions. We will maintain a dedicated focus providing service and continuous improvement, and we will remain committed to fostering an environment that sustains Pope County’s traditions of transformational community service and pride.
