MissionThe mission of the Human Resources Division is to make the City of Park Ridge a Wonderful Place to live and work by:

  • Dedicating to public service.
Maintaining Employee SatisfactionThe City of Park Ridge takes pride in attracting and retaining a diverse, high-quality, professional workforce in order to meet the service demands of the residents and businesses of this community. In order to remain competitive with similar markets, such as comparable local governments within the Chicagoland area, the City's compensation and benefits strategy has been to maintain employee salaries and benefits near the midpoint of these historically comparable communities.

Compensation and BenefitsThe City of Park Ridge values our employees, the contribution they make to the community, and understands the importance of retaining quality employees in meeting the service needs of the community. The Human Resources Division consists of three full-time employees: Human Resources Generalist, Human Resource Specialist, and Administrative Service Manager.

Human Resources continually monitors comparable communities' salary and benefit information to strive to be an employer of choice . In addition, other factors, such as cost of living, employee performance, and union contract obligations, are used in determining the City's compensation and benefits package. The City is currently analyzing the compensation and benefits strategy to include Chicagoland area businesses in addition to local governments where applicable.

Board of Fire and Police CommissionersAdditionally, Human Resources provides assistance to the Board of Fire and Police Commissioners in recruitment, promotion and hearings involving uniformed Fire and Police personnel.
