Human Resources Office


It is our daily commitment to the California National Guard Soldiers, Airmen, Civilians and their families to provide quality customer service and HR support in our manpower and personnel mission. It is our hope to garner and maximize our federal human capital to be the premiere workforce now and for the future.


The mission of the Human Resources Department is to formulate human resource policies and programs that enhance the quality of the work environments. Collaborate with Managers and supervisors in supporting effective recruitment and development of a highly qualified workforce. Create a strategic partnership which fosters individual achievement, personal and professional development, teamwork, integrity, professionalism, and accountability.

Human Resource Foundation Principles:

• Understand the business environment in which we perform
• Protect the dignity and privacy of our employees
• Demonstrate a true service orientation
• Pursue innovative approaches to human resource management
• Practice teamwork and mutual support within the human resource function
• Demonstrate principled leadership
• Act with integrity and high ethical standards.
• Engage in personal and professional development


The Benefits and Retirements section helps to provide and assist Technicians to enroll and maintain benefits, entitlements, and retirements to include maintaining employment records. Additionally, our Human Resources Analysts are trained to supply quality customer service, giving the proper guidance, counseling, and training on most aspects of a Technician’s benefits and entitlements such as USERRA, FEHB, and TSP to name a few. Additionally, our analysts work closely with other HRO sections to resolve any pay, salary, and entitlement issues.


Our Injury Compensation and Unemployment Compensation (ICUC) specialists are specifically trained to administer and manage the injury and unemployment programs on behalf of the Department of Labor’s (DOL) Office of the Worker’s Compensation Program (OWCP). ICUC agents will assist Technicians with submitting injury claims and work as the liaison between them and DOL Claims Examiners to ensure accuracy of OWCP benefits and payments.
