Human Resources Department - The Mission
Our mission is to increase the quality of life for the citizens of Cary by supporting Town departments with quality, state of the art municipal personnel services. As a service provider, the Town relies on well-trained, motivated, caring and professional employees.
We promote model personnel and safety programs and practices to attract, develop and retain a well-qualified and diverse work force, continuously improving these programs so that the Town of Cary will be the employer of choice. We ensure that personnel actions are both legal and fair, embracing change and providing a work environment where employees are encouraged to be creative and to maximize their potential.
We recognize outstanding employee performance through three Employee Relations Programs.
- TEAM Player: Excellent team performance/enhancement recognition submitted by employee supervisors.
- PEER Awards: Peer to peer recognition of outstanding performance/enhancements
- Employee of the Year: See all Employee of the Year winners since the inception of the program.
Town of Cary - The Organization
Service is our only product at the Town of Cary, where more than 1,000 staff members in more than 275 jobs strive each day to be the best local government in North Carolina.
Vision and policy rest with the mayor and six Town Council members whom Cary citizens elect to four-year terms. The Town manager is ultimately responsible for implementation of the council's vision.
We approach our work with energy and commitment and with encouragement to be innovative, responsive and efficient. We believe in treating others with dignity and respect as we strive to meet, even exceed, citizens' expectations.
Cary, N.C. - The Community We Serve
Located in the heart of the state's renowned Research Triangle Park region, Cary offers a quality of life second to none in North Carolina.
Once a small bedroom community to nearby Raleigh and Durham, today's Cary is the seventh largest municipality in the state with more than 140,000 residents. Two thirds of adults have a college degree and half have school-aged children.
Cary is home to world-class businesses as well as the most popular national retail stores. Our citizens enjoy tree-lined streets, exquisitely maintained buildings and grounds, and more than 20 parks linked by more than a dozen miles of greenways and trails.
Thanks to nationally accredited police and fire departments as well as emergency medical services, Cary is consistently rated as one of the safest places in America.
