Equal Employment Opportunity and Workplace Diversity Statement

The State of West Virginia is strongly committed to  the recruitment, selection, development, and promotion of employees based on individual merit. Our policy is to provide equal employment opportunity to all people without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, or disability. We continually seek to build and maintain a workforce that reflects the rich diversity of our State.​

The Division of Personnel’s application and referral procedures are based on the public’s expectations of a State workforce that is efficient, fair, open to all, free from political interference, and staffed by honest, competent, and dedicated employees.

Indeed, it is a violation of State law for any person to use any official authority or influence to attempt to secure for any person an advantage in appointment to a position in the classified service.

The Division of Personnel encourages all qualified persons to apply for employment. You can be assured that your qualifications will be fully and fairly considered.
