Welcome to the Office of the Civilian Personnel Director, the policy office for the United States Forces Korea (USFK) Korean National Labor Program. As the Executive Agent of the Korean National Labor Program on behalf of the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) and U.S. Pacific Command, and in coordination with Army, Air Force, and Navy service component representatives, we are committed to establishing human resources and compensation policies that enable DoD organizations and invited contractors working in the Republic of Korea (ROK) to employ, manage and retain a highly professional local national civilian workforce in support of the USFK mission and the ROK-U.S. Alliance. We are dedicated to providing outstanding human resources leadership through innovative guidance, problem-solving, and human capital planning. We are the USFK representative for Korean National employee matters to the ROK Ministry of Employment and Labor, as well as the National Labor Relations Commission.  

Mission and Vision Statement

Our mission is to enhance command readiness by developing, managing and executing Korean National human resources policies, programs, and systems for the USFK Korean National workforce on behalf of the U.S. DoD for all DoD organizations and invited contractors working in Korea under the provisions of the U.S.-ROK Status of Forces Agreement (U.S.-ROK SOFA).
