About the HR Actions Lookup Tool

Online Tool Shares Examples of City HR-related Actions

Ever wonder exactly what other cities are doing on HR-related matters? Use the City HR Actions Lookup tool to find examples from cities across the state. This lookup tool includes over 1,100 examples of what cities have done in the area of HR. Categories include combining positions, eliminating positions, changing policies that affect staff, early retirement, making changes to employee benefits, and more. These examples have been pulled out of the City Budget-Balancing Lookup for a streamlined focus on HR actions. Users may search by city name, type of action, or both.

Where do the examples come from?
The Lookup contains over 1,100 examples gathered from media stories and League surveys, listservs, and events. Examples were collected until December 2016.

I found an exciting idea! How do I learn more?
Although League staff members know about city HR actions, they often don’t know many of the details about them. Please contact the city directly to learn more about their process, pros/cons, lessons learned, etc. If an example from your city is short on details, please send us a more robust description and we’ll add it to the Lookup.
