Governor's Human Resources Advisory Council - RG 531 | Illinois State Archives

Name: Governor's Human Resources Advisory Council - RG 531


Historical Note: The Governor’s Human Resources Advisory Council was created in 1991 to study and recommend ways to attract highly qualified professionals to state and local government employment. It consisted of 23 members comprised of business, labor, government, and academic leaders throughout Illinois. The council was instructed to review and revise the state personnel system and to recommend an improved, practical, modern, and competitive system which is based on merit and provides the flexibility needed to carry out the increasingly complex tasks that have become the state’s responsibility. The recommended improvements included a revised Personnel Code, the enhancement of management techniques in government operations, and the enactment of pilot programs in some state departments to test unique personnel initiatives (e.g.,  the use of “flex time”, allowing employees to work from home when needed). The council held public hearings for input on the personnel system, researched personnel systems from other states, surveyed state employees, conducted focus groups to assess the employment policies and procedures of state agencies, and advised the Governor on short-term issues pertaining to human resources matters. Its final report recommending changes in the state’s personnel system was made to the Governor in September 1993 at which time the council passed from existence (Governor’s Human Resources Advisory Council Final Report, 1993).
