Personnel committee to review human resources director applications

MORRIS – Applications for the human resources director position at Grundy County are set to be reviewed this weekend by members of the Personnel Committee.

This comes just a few days after the county board accepted the resignation Monday night of Debra Johnson as human resources director. Each Personnel Committee member will review the 13 applications and recommend who he or she thinks should be interviewed.

The committee plans to interview candidates Thursday or Friday of next week.

“We didn’t want to consider hiring anyone until we received all of the applications,” committee Chairwoman Vicki Geiger said Friday. “Sometimes it’s a second or third interview process. I’m confident we’ll find a good candidate.”

Members of the personnel committee approved at Thursday’s Personnel Committee meeting for Johnson to work intermittently as human resources director and then transition to training the selected candidate.

Johnson, who starts her part-time job the week of Dec. 1, will help train the new hire on nights and weekends on an hourly basis.

“I’m just working hard trying to make this transition as easy as possible for the employees sake. It’s a challenging time.” Johnson said.

Geiger said the county is appreciative Johnson is staying to help with the transition. She added the human resources director position is one of the most important positions within the county.

“They are a resource for all employees. If an employee has any problems, potentially insurance questions, they would go to the HR director,” Geiger said. “It’s important that position be filled.”

Johnson previously said she resigned because the Personnel Committee insisted it wanted a full-time human resources director instead of part time.

Grundy County also is looking for a new assistant to the human resources director. Former assistant Linda Ragan resigned earlier this year.

But Johnson said plans to hire a new assistant are on hold until a new director is selected, so the director can have input on selecting the new assistant.

“The assistant works for the director. It’s only a two-person department,” she said. “You would want to have input in who your assistant’s going to be.”
