Human Resources and Employment

The Human Resources Office is committed to facilitating the accomplishment of Seminole State College's mission and strives to ensure compliance with SSC Board policies and procedures, federal and state employment policies, and benefit laws. Our goal is to provide services including employee benefits, salary administration, worker’s compensation, human resource and leadership development, FMLA, confidential personnel record keeping, equal opportunity employment and effective employee relations. We will continually search for and implement better and more efficient ways to provide these services — all of which promote the security and well-being of the College’s most valuable resource – our students, faculty, and staff.
