CCSF HR Analyst Training Program Fiscal Year 2016-17
The City and County of San Francisco is committed to attracting and hiring the best and brightest talent, and become a great place to work and develop a career in government. As part of this commitment, the Department of Human Resources (DHR) HR Analyst Training Program is re-launching in Fiscal Year 2016/17. This program is created to provide trainees with foundational best practices and comprehensive functional training in all areas of human resources. The curriculum and practicum are designed for trainees to become well-rounded generalists in human resources. Each trainee will be placed in a participating City department upon graduation from the program. DHR is now accepting applications from departments to participate in the program.
HR Analyst Training Program Overview Trainees will receive classroom learning on human resources best practices, policies and procedures, on-the-job training, rotational department practicums, and ongoing mentoring. A successful HR Analyst trainee is expected to possess the technical competencies to qualify as an HR Analyst as described in the 1241 Personnel Analyst job classification .
Educated & Skilled Trainees. The program encompasses a comprehensive human resources training curriculum and workshops of various duration (three days to two months) that are designed and delivered by DHR divisions. The divisions involved in the training curriculum include: Employees Relations, Equal Employment Opportunity, Recruitment and Assessment, Client Services Operations, Client Services HR Consulting, Classification and Compensation, Workforce Development and Workers’ Compensation. Trainees also participate in professional development workshops facilitated by DHR’s Workforce Development Division. Project-Based HR Support. The program combines DHR training with on-the-job practicums at participating departments for human resources related focus areas. After two and a half months of training in DHR, trainees will engage with departments on a three-week project where they will apply their learning from training to a department's project. The program offers three cycles of DHR training and departmental practicums over a ten month period and is expected to enable the trainee to learn all aspects of the City’s human resources system and gain work experience in three different City departments.
Mentorship. In addition to technical mentors from the various DHR divisions to guide the trainees’ progress, DHR will assign a Senior HR Analyst to each trainee for the duration of the program. While assessments will be regularly conducted throughout the program, a final evaluation of all required competencies will bring closure to the program and ensure a successful graduation and transition to a promotive position as the HR Analyst (class 1241).
Building on Past Success Departments in the pilot HR Analyst Training Program (also known as the 1249 program) included the Airport, the Assessor-Recorder’s Office, the Controller’s Office, the Department of Emergency Management, DHR, the Department of Public Health, the Human Services Agency, the Municipal Transportation Agency and the Port. The program set a high standard for newly recruited trainees and received great feedback and success. Departments and trainees alike were very satisfied with the outcomes. Departments were able to assign a variety of projects knowing that the trainee understood the how, why and implications of the task to be done. At the same time, the trainees were able to be fully operational with their newly acquired skillsets.
