Personnel Commission Vision

We are the first ones to recognize that perfection does not exist and that there is always room for improvement.  We are aware that much is yet to be done and that we cannot afford to remain inert.

Model Employer

The Personnel Commission should serve as an example within the Los Angeles Community College District.

Rapid Response

We should establish the ability and reputation for prompt response to situations and requests.

Sense of Urgency

Staff should be trained and conditioned to undertake commitments with an attitude that delay is not acceptable.

Sense of Purpose

Staff should understand that ours is not a routine service function but rather a purposeful mission.

All Weather Commitment

We should deliver on our promises and commitments regardless of obstacles.

Customer Friendly

Greater sensitivity to the views and needs of people who are dependent upon our services.

Effective Integration

Our functions should dovetail with the total District fabric.

Proactive & Innovative

Our services and responses should be creative and state of the art.

Proactive & Preventative

Our services and timing should anticipate developments and foreclose negative occurrences before they happen.

Challenging & Satisfying Work

Our duties and mission should be structured in a manner that is challenging, satisfying and fulfilling to our staff members.


Our mission and activities should promote price and “buy in” in the work we do by our staff members.


Our operations should shift toward “high tech” and state of the art techniques ahead of other entities.

Informed Commissioners

Communications between staff and Commissioners should preclude surprises and incorporate input/feedback.

Positive Image

Staff activities should be mindful of the image of the Commission and foster promoting a positive reputation.
