Workforce Statistics

The Bureau of Human Resources (HR) is responsible for the Department of State’s greatest asset – our people.

Our mission is to recruit, retain, sustain, and empower a diverse, talented workforce to carry out the Department’s foreign policy goals and priorities. The Department has three distinct personnel systems: Civil Service (CS), Foreign Service (FS), and Locally Employed Staff (LE Staff).
