At Monday’s meeting of the Yankton City Commission the board will consider an agreement with Richard Fursman of the personnel recruitment firm of Huelife to begin the search for candidates for the position of Director of Human Resources and Employee Engagement.
Mayor Nathan Johnson says in today’s business environment having an effective person managing human resource and personnel issues is vital.
City Manager Amy Leon says she is looking for candidates who will work well within the structure of municipal government.
Leon says there is a difference between working in the private sector and a public entity such as the city of Yankton.
Leon says she would like to see the new person hired for the Director of Human Resources and Employee Engagement position by this May.
