The Human Resources and Risk Management Department is committed to providing a work atmosphere that is safe, healthy and secure and also conscious of long-term family and community goals. We focus on establishing, administering and effectively communicating sound policies and practices that treat employees with dignity and equality while maintaining County compliance with employment and labor laws.

Furthermore, it is the policy that all persons employed be entitled to training, compensation, promotions, benefits, and all other attributes of employment without regard to race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin, ancestry, and physical or mental disability.

In keeping with this policy, Anderson County Government will continue to recruit, hire, train, and promote into top job levels the most qualified person, without regard to race, religion, color, sex, age, national origin, ancestry, or non-job related disability.
