The HR Connection

We work better, when we work together…

The HR Connection is a monthly newsletter intended for payroll, benefits & human resources staff of MoDOT & the Highway Patrol. It provides legislative and policy updates pertaining to MPERS as well as serving as a forum to address any questions or confusion pertaining to our daily work.
