The Human Resources Department at the City of Chattanooga provides a variety of service based functions for the city that include but are not limited to: Talent and Employment Services, Employee Benefits and Wellness, Safety Compliance and Risk Management, Employee Relations and Development, and HRMS database maintenance and development. These functions are critical for maintaining a healthy and diverse workforce. Employee Benefits and Wellness provide a vital role with employee services and assistance throughout the employment life cycle, beginning with attracting talent. Other important touchpoints at the city revolve around medical benefits, leaves, long term disability, pension administration, Well-Advantage clinic, pharmacy and fitness center. The current benefits division of the Human Resources department, excluding compensation, is comprised of a Director of Employee Benefits, Manager of Pension and Benefits, two (2) Benefits Specialists, one (1) Leave Coordinator and one (1) shared (with Operations) HR Administrative Specialist. The benefits division has not added staff to their team since 2019.
The year 2020 brought forward the COVID-19 pandemic. The department did not add any additional staff to address the needs and mandates that arose from the pandemic seemingly assuming it would not last forever. Instead the HR Department part and parceled out duties related to COVID-19 after it became overwhelming to specifically assigned staff due to the sheer volume of reported cases and exposures. The benefits team is comprised of mostly tenured employees who have not had the ability to cross-train their functionality. When those employees are absent, it is felt by the whole department because no backup exists. The HR Department is in great need of adding an additional position to this division of the department to keep up with the continuous needs and cross train in the functionality of pension and leaves for continuity of service.

The initiative to increase the number of students in Chattanooga who graduate high school is led by Chattanooga 2.0 In order to achieve this goal, promote positive coping skills, and improve academic performance, it is vital to address children’s challenges early on. In the course of a school year, children with unidentified mental health issues may miss 22 days of school while 14% of children with mental health needs receive grades of Ds and Fs. Emotional intelligence can be taught and is the best predicator of future successes of a child. Therefore, best practice guidelines indicate that a person’s emotional intelligence has a direct result of successes in life. The evidence based model provided through Project BASIC, the Pyramid model, would ensure that the mental health needs of children are readily identified and responded to which would increase their ability to focus and perform academically. The Pyramid model would assist children in their natural learning environment to learn and grow emotionally by targeting social and emotional IQ in the classroom. Not only do the students and teachers benefit from this curriculum, but the families also benefit though the individual support provided to them. The program has historically been successful in identifying elementary aged children who are in need of mental health services by linking those children and their families to community resources to improve attendance and academic performance.

The Intensive Criminal Justice Case Management Program (ICJCM) will promote public health by engaging individuals with mental illness, substance abuse disorders, or those who have co-occurring disorders, and a history of criminal justice system involvement. Individuals will be provided with comprehensive services to treat a variety of problems which may affect their participation in criminal activity and overall health. The goals of the program are to provide appropriate treatment and support, to reduce criminal activity and to increase community tenure. By engaging our citizens in mental health care who have increased activity in the legal system, we are empowering them to better their overall health and wellbeing. Individuals who have been incarcerated or who are at risk for re-incarceration will be served in this program for 90 days. A minimum of fifteen individuals will be engaged in the program at a time. Johnson Mental Health Center will work with Chattanooga Police Department, The Family Justice Center, Mental Health Court, Probation and Parole and other community programs. The case manager will assist individuals with receiving mental health treatment, housing, substance abuse treatment, employment services, access to benefits, and medical services. As individuals become stable, crimes will be reduced, city streets will become safer, overall health will benefit and costs to the city will be reduced. This program also works closely with the Pre-arrest diversion program at JMHC. The goal of these programs is to provide earlier intervention and more comprehensive after care and follow up. When afforded the opportunity to have more intense support and supervision individuals have a greater chance of breaking the cycle of incarceration. Once individuals complete their time in the ICJCM program, they are referred to other services and resources to continue their treatment. The philosophy of providing the most intense treatment, combined with the ICJCM and other community programs working together, the goals of increasing the safety of Chattanooga’s citizens and improve the overall quality of life in our city through development of safer streets can be realized.
