It is the goal of the Staffing Division to provide processes and policies that enable state agency managers to fill vacant positions with highly qualified applicants in a timely fashion and in accordance with legal and professional standards. Through ongoing administration and training in Staffing rules, policies, and the LA Careers online application system, as well as the administration of written tests to job candidates, Staffing consultants strive to assist state agencies in meeting their hiring needs so that quality services may be delivered to Louisiana citizens.

Staffing - Approved Promotional Zones

Promotional zones have been established to allow agencies flexibility in determining the appropriate applicant pool when filing different vacancies, i.e., to attract applicants familiar with certain agency prolicies and procedures or a certian type of work, or conversely, to expand a promotional opportunity to all classified permanent state employees.

Currently, each individual personnel area is a promotional zone. A promotional opportunity can be limited to employees in that one personnel area (column B) or, if the agency has multiple personnel areas, expandedto the agency as a whole (column C). The promotional zone can also be all classified state employees with permanent status.
