The Virginia Department of Human Resource Management (DHRM) is the central human resource agency for the Commonwealth of Virginia. We make people our business and strive to be a recognized leader and trusted partner in bringing forth best practices to
attract, develop and retain the Commonwealth's workforce.
DHRM is responsible for the establishment of the Commonwealth's job classification structure; base and non-base compensation programs; a variety of benefits programs that cover current
and retired state employees, as well as some local government employees; employee-management relations; performance management programs that include establishing standards for employee conduct grounded in civility in the workplace; talent acquisition
and retention; and employee training and development. DHRM is responsible for introducing technology and system solutions for the management of people-related data and processes. Equal employment opportunity remains a top priority with an expanded
focus on diversity, equity and inclusion within the workplace. Operating in a decentralized human resources environment, DHRM is required to administer a program of evaluation of the effectiveness of performance of personnel activities of the agencies
of the Commonwealth.
