Human Resources

Welcome WACOG employee!

The mission of our Human Resources department is to develop and administer policies (the why) and procedures (the how) that attract and retain the highest caliber workforce available.  In doing so, we will help ensure the morale, work quality, productivity, and customer service of WACOG meets or exceeds community and regulatory requirements.  Our department is committed to WACOG and its employees in becoming a recognized leader in customer service through continuous quality improvement programs.  Furthermore, Human Resources recognizes the importance of promoting and providing employment that encourages a healthy balance between a safe, fair, rewarding, quality work environment and personal/family life.

Injured on the Job?

Notice to All Employees

The procedure for reporting an injury and seeking treatment is located in numerous locations around WACOG including in each Head Start/Early Head Start center, administrative offices, Human Resources, and in Agency Vehicles.  Required forms are located in each procedure packet for use.

REMEMBER: If you wouldn’t go to the doctor for an injury that happened at home, then you probably do not need to go to the doctor if a similar injury happens at work. Please report any incident regardless of severity using the appropriate form within the procedure packet.  Medical treatment can be sought at a later date if the injury was reported and does not resolve on it’s own. A report of injury filed appropriately with Human Resources will still be considered a worker’s compensation claim within 12 months.
