Human Resources


To provide quality Human Resource service to attract, develop, motivate, and retain a diverse workforce within a supportive tribal environment.
In support of the Tribe’s principals, values, vision and mission, it is the goal of Human Resources to support the total operation of the Tribe by utilizing its most valuable resource – PEOPLE. The staff of Human Resources is committed to evaluating and meeting the needs of the Absentee Shawnee Tribal workforce. We are dedicated to providing high quality service to all prospective, current, and past employees along with tribal members.


Human Resources manages the Tribal employment process in areas such as, but not limited to, recruitment, hiring and on-boarding, benefits administration, employee and labor relations, and policy recommendation. Human Resources is also dedicated to treating individuals with respect, care, and individual attention from first contact throughout the entire employment relationship. The doors at Human Resources are always open to our employees and tribal members for any questions or assistance we can provide.
