FY 2023-2024 Continuous Improvement Focus

Business Process Improvement Initiative
The Human Resources Department has been part of a recruitment and retention working group of department heads and assistant department heads. Evaluating and streamlining the hiring process has been one of the objectives of this group. While progress has been made through this effort, the next phase will involve a detailed business process analysis with the support of a consultant to help the Human Resources staff and department hiring managers evaluate processes and workflows and maximize systems to improve “time to hire.”
What does Success Look Like?
The Human Resources Department will create a positive candidate experience when they apply for County of Marin positions with hiring processes and timelines that are as efficient and expedited as feasible thereby reducing the risk of losing candidates to competing employers. With improved processes, the County will decrease time to hire by 10 percent and reduce the countywide average vacancy rate from 13 percent to 10 percent.
