As we watch 2022 come to a close, it is worth taking note of the record number of new hires at the District this year. The District has hired twenty-two new employees in 2022, a level of hiring that is nearly double that of the next highest year. Some of the hiring was associated with the need to create and fill new positions, or to fill positions that had been vacant coming into the year. Other hiring was associated with abnormally high employee turnover, a common experience during COVID-19 for employers everywhere (six of the departures being for well deserved retirements). All of this hiring has made it a busy year for our HR staff and the Department Managers that are involved in the hiring processes in their departments. We expect more hiring in 2023; just not at the hectic pace we have had this year.
