Human Resources (HR) serves as a partner to departments within the organization to provide advice, support, and recommendations to effectively utilize and manage the City's most valuable asset - its people!

Our strategic role is to provide an avenue by which managers can attract and retain quality employees. This includes compensation and classification, benefits administration, employee wellness, recruiting and retention, training and development, and recommending short-term and long-term human resource management.

HR consists of three full-time, energetic employees who are committed to providing exceptional customer service to our external and internal customers.

We work together with other departments to symbolize the City's mission statement: "The City of DeSoto commits to provide, to its citizens, the highest standard of government services through constant productivity and persistent advancement, while fostering integrity, transparency, and fiscal responsibility.”

We consistently strive to challenge the traditional ways of business and to be the best organization we can be. Above all, we are here for our employees and citizens!

The City of DeSoto has been recognized as a 2014 American Heart Association Gold Level Fit-Friendly Worksite. For more information about this honor, please click the this link.
