WVC 18 B- 7 - 1 §18B-7-1. Legislative intent and purpose.
     (a) The intent of the Legislature in enacting this article and articles eight, nine and nine-a of this chapter is to establish a state-wide, integrated human resources structure capable of, but not limited to, meeting the following objectives:

     (1) Providing benefits to the citizens of the State of West Virginia by supporting the public policy agenda as articulated by state policymakers;

     (2) Assuring fiscal responsibility by making the best use of scarce resources;

     (3) Promoting fairness, accountability, credibility, transparency and a systematic approach to progress (FACTS) in personnel decision-making;

     (4) Reducing, or, wherever possible, eliminating arbitrary and capricious decisions affecting employees of higher education organizations as defined in section two, article nine-a of this chapter;

     (5) Creating a stable, self-regulating human resources system capable of evolving to meet changing needs;

     (6) Providing for institutional flexibility with meaningful accountability;

     (7) Adhering to federal and state laws;

     (8) Adhering to duly promulgated and adopted rules; and

     (9) Implementing best practices throughout the state higher education system.

     (b) To accomplish these goals, the Legislature encourages organizations to pursue a human resources strategy which provides monetary and nonmonetary returns to employees in exchange for their time, talents and efforts to meet articulated goals, objectives and priorities of the state, the commission and council, and the organization. The system should maximize the recruitment, motivation and retention of highly qualified employees, ensure satisfaction and engagement of employees with their jobs, ensure job performance and achieve desired results.
