Since its incorporation in 1960, the unprecedented growth of San Dimas has transformed the City from an essentially rural area to a well-balanced community offering industrial, commercial, and residential living. In addition to the 1,700 acre Frank G. Bonelli Recreational Area which lies within the City boundaries, there are many parks such as San Dimas Canyon Park, a city-owned golf course (San Dimas Canyon Golf Club), and over 27 miles of equestrian trails for riding. The city services include an extensive recreational program for youth and for senior citizens, and the City boasts a new modern City Hall, with excellent provisions made for County Sheriff and Fire Departments, along with a fine Los Angeles County Library and Engineering Regional Office.
Human Resources is responsible for providing comprehensive human resource services to assist all City Departments in achieving their goals. Human Resources staff recruits prospective employees; works with Departments to select the most qualified employees; develops employee recognition programs; conducts wage and compensation analysis; and administers employee benefit programs. Human Resources also coordinates training and development activities by assessing employee training needs in cooperation with Departments to improve employee knowledge and skill levels. Human Resources administers Workers’ Compensation claims, promotes safety awareness and employee safety training, and strives to reduce the frequency and severity of claims through proactive risk management efforts. Human Resources processes job performance reviews and pay status changes, conducts new employee processing and exit interviews, and administers the City’s personnel policies in a fair and consistent manner.
