Human Resources

At Morton County, we envision an organization where people arrive to work each day inspired to make a positive impact on other people’s lives through their service - no matter their job.  


  • We genuinely believe if you are provided with clear guidance of what is expected, you will honor those expectations. 
  • We also serve our community through the eyes, ears, and voices of those individuals we employ.
  • We carefully choose our Team members and ensure they have one single commonality - a desire to serve.
  • We, as a team, define our culture of service through our performance. Our actions and behaviors create our environment and our environment will define the quality of service provided to our constituents.  If our contributions are less than positive, the service level will suffer along with the overall reputation of not only the Department but our organization as a whole.  Our goal is to create a healthy internal environment so we can provide strong and supportive services to our community.


Because we distinctly believe in a positive and pro-active culture,

we insist that YOU aspire each day to make a positive impact on other people’s

lives through your own performance no matter what job title you hold.


Public Service is a worthy endeavor. It is the epitome of putting the organization and those we serve first. Although our constituents come first, we make every effort to create a balance so your needs are equally considered. We will work tirelessly to provide you with a value-driven employment experience. In return, we ask for your employee contributions to be filled with creativity, inspiration, and kindness.


Let us embark on our journey of public service by paying reverence to those who came before us as early as 1871. Let’s continue to set the example for how great local government can be.
