​​​​​​​Creating enterprise-wide HR programs that help agencies attract, develop and retain a high-performing workforce. ​





The DOAS Human Resources Administration Division (HRA) supports Executive Branch state employers of various types across Georgia.  HRA provides talent management solutions that empower state agency HR and business leaders to manage their workforce in an effective and efficient manner. 


The Division's core services include creation and maintenance of the state's job classification and pay structure; administration of state employees' Flexible Benefits Plan; and talent management consulting services, including the states performance management program, policy interpretation and practical application tools designed to assist state entities in minimizing HR compliance risks.  The Division also manages a statewide Charitable Contributions Program, which seeks to provide opportunities for state employees to remain engaged within their local communities..​


The Division serves a Governor-appointed State Personnel Board of five members responsible for setting statewide HR policies, and a Governor-appointed Employee Benefits Plan Council consisting of ten members responsible for overseeing the Division's management of the Employees' Flexible Benefits trust fund.  Although the HRA Division does not manage the major healthcare program or retirement plans for the state employees, the Division works collaboratively in partnership with the Department of Community Health and the Employees' Retirement System respectively, to deliver a competitive benefit package to all individuals that have chosen a path of public service.​

What is Team Georgia?

Did you know that DOAS maintains Team Georgia, the State's homepage for State Employees? Through Team Georgia, state employees can access their health and flex benefits as well as the Georgia state employee and manager self-service portal - where state employees can view their pay stubs, leave hours, and performance evaluations. The site provides direct access to career opportunities throughout state government via Careers.ga.gov and to the Team Georgia Directory of state agency leadership. 

Team Georgia also features timely and relevant news, discounts specifically for state employees, lists of recent retirees, policy updates, inclement weather alerts that impact statewide office closures, and service tips. The top updates from Team Georgia are sent directly to state employees in this monthly email newsletter.
