City Manager Rashad M. Young announced that Bettina A. Deynes, Director of Human Resources, for the city of Alexandria, will resign effective September 10 to become the Vice President of Human Resources for the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM). SHRM is the world’s largest human resources membership organization, with 275,000 members in over 160 countries.
Deynes joined the City in 2012. Since that time, she has led a comprehensive review and update of the City’s human resources procedures, implemented a performance-based compensation approach for senior executives, overseen major changes to health insurance benefits to control costs for employees and taxpayers, guided several departmental reorganizations and key staff recruitments, and upgraded human resources staff positions.
The City will launch a nationwide search for a new director, and an acting director will be announced by the City Manager at a later time.
