The work of making sure jobs in the city of Clovis are filled by highly motivated and skilled employees is made easier by a number of factors – attractive salaries, generous benefit plans and a highly desirable community that features top-notch schools. Consequently, compared with other Central California communities, city employees tend to stay on the job longer here – in fact, the annual retention rate among Clovis city employees tops 90 percent.

At least 90 percent of the workforce – police, firefighters, public works employees and unaffiliated employees, such as clerk and office support personnel – are represented by employee bargaining groups. Key to the contented workforce, too, is the city’s commitment to diversity. Extensive efforts are made to recruit quality candidates who represent the changing face of Clovis. Recruitment efforts target in particular local institutions of higher learning, including Reedley College, Fresno City College and Fresno State University.
