Service with integrity defines how we approach everything we do in the Human Resources Department!

To be truly successful in providing the necessary services, it is critical that employees trust us to treat them with dignity and respect and to balance their best interests with the needs of the City as a whole.  Our approach to maintaining and growing that trust is to operate with as much transparency as possible.  We also strive to balance creativity and resourcefulness with professional standards and best practice to meet our customer’s needs and ensure the highest fiscal responsibility to the citizens of Keizer.

The City of Keizer is composed of seven departments including City Recorder, Community Development, Finance, Human Resources, Legal, Police, and Public Works. We are led by the City Manager who reports directly to the City Council.  The City employs 102 employees with approximately 1/2 the employees represented by two unions.  Fire and emergency services are provided by the Keizer Rural Fire Protection District.

The Human Resources Department develops, administers and provides service to staff and the public in the following areas:

  • Classification and compensation
  • Employee benefits
  • Employee and labor relations
  • Health and wellness
  • Human Resources Information System (HRIS)
  • Intranet
