Welcome to the Human Resources Department

City of Sarasota's Human Resource Department provides an "Open Door" policy to all City employees and the public from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, Monday thru Friday.

Human Resources supports City employees by providing benefits, a competitive pay plan, employee development opportunities, employee orientation, employee activities, events, recognition and communications, conflict resolution, labor negotiations and Collective Bargaining Agreements, maintaining personnel data, recruitment and applicant tracking, a variety of internal and external training offerings, rules and regulations and risk management. A positive work environment is achieved through open communication and activities that enhance effective working relationships.

The City is firmly committed to equal employment opportunity and does not discriminate in any employment-related decisions on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, pregnancy, national origin, age, disability, marital status or other similar factors that are not job related.

The Human Resources Department also supports two of the City’s advisory boards: the Human Relations Advisory Board and Citizens with Disabilities Advisory Board.
