Director’s Message

Aloha and welcome to the website for the Department of Human Resources Development (DHRD).  DHRD administers the human resources programs for the 14,000 employees of the State’s executive branch departments (excluding the Department of Education).

As DHRD Director, I am proud to lead the staff of human resources professionals who support the State executive branch.  DHRD’s professionals are the subject matter experts for the State’s human resources programs; they provide guidance to departmental personnel staff, who in turn advise employees on all personnel matters.  DHRD serves as the central agency responsible for the human resources policies and procedures that support operational initiatives and efficiencies within the State departments listed below.

For current State executive branch employees, we hope this website will be your primary resource for information about our human resources programs, including labor relations, employee benefits, employee training, workers’ compensation and safety.  DHRD’s website is also the centralized access point for human resources administrative rules, procedures and forms.
