Anne Soileau, Director of State Civil Service, has announced plans to retire after 30 years of state service.
The Louisiana Department of Civil Service is the central personnel agency for State government and administers a comprehensive, merit-based personnel management program. Its function is to help state agencies manage their human resources so that they may provide the most effective service to the citizens of Louisiana.
"Under Anne’s leadership, the Department of Civil Service has made some remarkable strides in progressive, innovative human resources practices. Her contributions to the agency, particularly the development of a new performance appraisal system and the outstanding leadership demonstrated during the critical aftermath of Katrina and Rita, were invaluable. She has been an outstanding Civil Service Director," said James Smith, chairman of the State Civil Service Commission.
