Human Resources

Our Human Resources Department is committed to attracting, supporting, and retaining a competitive workforce that will continue to contribute to the success of Franklin County and its employees.  We are here to support employees from their first inquiry about position vacancies, all the way through retirement.  

We support the needs and well-being of employees and their dependents by providing a competitive, comprehensive benefits and wellness package.  

Full-time employees may enroll in the Franklin County employee benefits program with coverage effective on the first day of the month following your new hire date.  

Part-time employees, regularly scheduled to work 20-29 hours a week, may participate in the County health and dental programs at full premium cost.  After five years of service, participants will receive a reduction in the monthly premium.
