On the Horizon December 2019
Spotlight on Working Parents
Virginia state government proudly employs thousands of people in diverse careers. We recognize that work/life balance plays an important role in an individual’s success on the job, and how challenging it can be for those juggling both a career and children.
The following new resources are geared towards informing and supporting working parents and their supervisors. Please share this material with your employees!
The 2020 General Assembly session convenes on Wednesday, January 8. To assist the agency HR community, DHRM will post legislation we are tracking during the session. More to come.

Financial Wellness Education Coming in January
The Virginia Employee State Loan Program (VSELP) and the Virginia Credit Union have partnered to develop the Virginia State Employee Financial Wellness program. The initiative will launch on January 15 with a financial wellness fair in Richmond. Our goal is to provide employees with a holistic financial wellness program that offers financial education alternatives and financial planning tips to help employees stay out of debt as well as reach financial goals. There will be regional monthly seminars and webinars provided in the COVA Learning Center.See more.
Are We Meeting Your Need for Information?
One year ago, DHRM introduced HR Highlights. Published monthly, it is designed to meet your request for a single source of information highlighting what’s happening within DHRM. Its intent is to provide a quick review of any program updates and also give insight into what is in motion for the future. Please take a moment to provide feedback to help us determine if we are meeting your expectations and how we might improve future issues. Thank you!
