Staffing - Approved Promotional Zones
Promotional zones have been established to allow agencies flexibility in determining the appropriate applicant pool when filling
different vacancies, i.e., to attract applicants familiar with certain agency policies and procedures or a certain type of work, or
conversely, to expand a promotional opportunity to all classified permanent state employees.
Currently, each individual personnel area is a promotional zone. A promotional opportunity can be limited to employees in that one
personnel area (column B) or, if the agency has multiple personnel areas, expanded to the agency as a whole (column C). The promotional
zone can also be all classified state employees with permanent status.
