Workforce Plan

Last updated: January 5, 2022

CALPIA’s Workforce Plan assesses the current state of our agency and sets the course of CALPIA’s future civil service workforce goals.

This plan was originally developed, in part, to meet CalHR’s requirement of all state organizations with civil service employees to have a workforce plan. This is a proactive and strategic approach to recruit, develop and retain a skilled and diverse workforce to ensure CALPIA can deliver on our critical missions now and in the future.

Workforce Plan

This three-year plan contains workforce analysis and strategies which reflect CALPIA’s commitment to growing an engaged, highly skilled, and diverse workforce. The workforce plan and goals within are directly tied to CALPIA’s current Strategic Business Plan, 2021-2024, and our mission and core values. CALPIA’s workforce plan directly addresses two immediate areas:

  • Ensuring we mentor all staff and guide them to becoming the agency’s next leaders.
  • Ensuring we share information and collaborate.
