Human Resources Department

The Human Resources Department is committed to attracting, hiring, motivating, training and retaining the best employees in order to provide the highest quality of service to residents, businesses and organizations within the City of Overland Park.

Through comprehensive human resource programs and systems, the four human resources divisions work to support the management of the city’s most valuable resource: our employees.


The city’s recruitment and hiring process and online employment application system make it easy for applicants to check for and apply for open positions.

We welcome all qualified applicants without regard to sex, race, color, ethnic background, religion, age, national origin, ancestry, pregnancy, certain military or veteran status, gender, sexual orientation, disability, gender identity, gender expression, or any other characteristic protected by law.

We ensure each employee a discrimination-free workplace and have a commitment to affirmative action and equal employment opportunities.

Compensation + Benefits

The Human Resources Department welcomes new employees with a thorough orientation and provides ongoing support with one of the most competitive employee compensation, benefits and retirement packages among local governmental employers.

By staying competitive, we are able to attract and retain the quality workforce that has built our reputation as a premier municipality.

Training + Development

Our commitment to employee training and development prepares employees to meet day-to-day and long-term challenges. The safety and loss prevention programs educate employees on practices that prevent injury and loss. The department also provides annual leadership development programs, ongoing supervisory training, and positive recognition programs for employees.
