Understanding this reality, we find the following quote somewhat confusing:
"The Department of Human Resources serves the taxpayers by focusing efforts on the County’s most valuable asset, its employees."
If it is true that HR is serving the taxpayers by focusing on its employees, then we have to ask - why does HR allow poor employees to continue in their positions, or worst yet, provide them better opportunities? We comprehend that the focus of employees leads to a point of concentration which provides understanding relating to the performance of an employee. Is it not so that an employee who is not performing according to the sound policies and practices implemented by the county be dealt with accordingly?
Furthermore, shouldn't their employment be terminated when they consistently defy policies by continuing behavior deemed improper according to policies?
Isn't it also part of HR goals to develop an attitude of integrity, trust, excellence, and teamwork? Isn't HR also responsible to act openly and consistently in pursuit of best practices; accepting responsibility for promoting ethical and legal conduct in personal and County practices; and provide a work atmosphere that is safe, healthy and secure, and conscious of long-term family and community goals?
Then why is that not the case? Why is someone like Ilisa Sacknoff allowed to continue to badger family members, as well as their placed loved ones? We The People cannot fathom this reality so we must ask WHY...and we'll start with County Executive John Stoffa because he is ultimately responsible for the actions of all employees.
