HR connects staff with mission and vision

For employees, retirees, and new staff, CDCR’s Human Resources (HR) has received an overhaul to better fulfill the department’s mission.

“We want our current and new HR hires to understand and connect with the mission of HR and our values,” said Jaclyn Padilla, Deputy Director, HR.

Padilla said the overhaul is a team effort.

“The entire headquarters HR team has been involved in the rebrand using Outlook voting, small crowd-sourcing activities and management discussions. This rebrand was really done by the team,” she said.

As the world has changed, so has HR.

“HR has evolved over the years with the services we provide and how we provide them. COVID-19 is a great example,” she said. “We all work really hard to provide a service but sometimes we get lost in the human aspect of our jobs.”

A major part of the overhaul was a renewed focus on what they do and why.

“This rebrand was part of an effort to reconnect and take a look at our mission statement and reevaluate it. The mission statement we developed as a culmination of several mission statements submitted by HR team members,” Padilla said.

To link with CDCR’s values, HR voted on several options.

“The values, a new logo and slogan, shows our commitment to customer service,” Padilla said.
