Human Resources Department

Our Mission is to provide leadership in the development and implementation of sound personnel systems based on merit principles and to attract, develop, and retain a diverse, well-qualified, and professional workforce that reflects the high standards of the community we serve.

We take this mission very seriously. Moving beyond the traditional role of personnel management, we strive to create a collaborative environment that rewards creativity and outstanding performance. We are committed to being strategic partners with all City departments, to ensure that the City has the talent and resources needed to provide great services to the community.

The Department provides a full-range of human resources services, including recruitment and selection, classification and compensation, benefits administration, employee safety services, labor relations, and training. To find information on employment opportunities, job descriptions, benefits, employee labor agreements, and the City of Oberlin Civil Service Rules, please visit and select the Human Resources tab.

We believe that the City’s greatest assets are its employees, and we take great pride in managing the systems that support a highly productive, innovative, caring, and customer-oriented workforce. The Human Resources Department may be contacted at (440) 775-7217.
