As a public employee, you strive for a higher purpose – to make a difference in the lives of others. The diversity of our culture, our workforce, and the broad customer base we serve support interesting, challenging  and diversified career possibilities in an environment beyond any other. Our expertise is varied and vast -- from professional and technical, to clerical and industrial.

Our talented team members join our ranks, and stay, for a variety of reasons – competitive benefits, growth and learning opportunities, flexibility, training, and the personal fulfillment in serving our community. While you may come for a job, we hope you stay for a career, and make a difference for a lifetime! It's our shared purpose.


What is MyPURPOSE?

Now available, MyPURPOSE is your new talent management system - an investment in you, our greatest asset.
Use MyPURPOSE to access training courses, review and apply for job openings, and eventually, for new employee information and for completing performance plans and evaluations. You’ll also have access to some exciting, innovative features like:



Through the Career Center, search and apply to career opportunities that interest you by uploading a resume or completing an application. You can also check on the status of your job submissions and refer jobs to your friends! MyPURPOSE will show all job postings available to you.






Create your personal profile and upload your picture, give and receive feedback from team members, and view your training transcript (coming soon) in one convenient location. You can also view pending actions and requests, and keep up with your to-do list here.






Be a part of the conversation with team members across the enterprise. Are you working on a project with other agencies? Or have you hit a roadblock and want to know how others have handled it? Participate in group discussions and share your experiences and expertise. Those groups you've been invited to join will automatically show as an option, or you can submit a request to create a group.






Coming soon!
CommonwealthU will provide access to more than 1,300 new online courses. You’ll be able to view upcoming instructor-led training opportunities, request enrollment, and view your training transcript. You can also earn Go365 Points for completing each of four featured health & wellness and personal development courses each quarter!






Coming in 2019!
Paper forms and red pens will soon be a part of the past once evaluations go electronic.





KHRIS will still be your system for time, payroll, and benefits.

Who can use MyPURPOSE?

If you’re a current Commonwealth executive branch employee or an employee of the Legislative Research Commission (for training only) you’ll have access to MyPURPOSE.
