Human Resources (Federal/AGR)

Director of Human Resources â€¢ ​COL Jody-Mike Smith

The Human Resource Office (HRO) is a joint office that provides personnel, manpower management, and administrative support service for all federal full-time personnel programs. Our goal is to ensure that opportunities are provided to everyone, allowing them to reach the highest level of responsibility attainable by their own individual talents and diligence. We foster an environment that recognizes people as its most important resource. We encourage teamwork, constructive working relationships, and we strive to employ the best available management practices aimed for the continuous pursuit of excellence.

The HRO directorate has the dual status of serving as an advocate for the full-time soldier and as a partner with management in an effort to accomplish all missions assigned to the Mississippi National Guard.
