Overview

The Office of the Governor’s Division of Personnel, now the Department of Human Resource Management, was created in 1942 as a function within the State Budget Office, but the history of the Virginia Personnel System dates back to the early 1900s. At that time, many agencies had independent sources of revenue. Employee pay and benefits were not uniform.

Today, the Department of Human Resource Management (DHRM) serves as the central human resource agency for state government. DHRM provides a broad range of leadership, guidance, and operational support to the state government and its stakeholders. Functions include Human Resource Systems Technology, Policy, Equal Employment Services, Employment, Compensation and Benefits, Employment Dispute Resolution, Talent Management and Workforce Planning, Workers’ Compensation, Wellness Programs, Charitable Giving.
