Beverly M. Whitehead, a native of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, came to Chatham County in 1988 to serve as its first Human Resources Director. Mrs. Whitehead was a strong advocate for employees, and mentored them in their professional and personal development. She brought a high level of professionalism to the office and created and implemented programs and activities that advanced the human resources function within County government.
She established the Chatham County Personnel Ordinance and Procedures Manual, implemented the Employee Assistance Program (EAP), established Grants-In-Aid committees, and instituted assessment centers to objectively evaluate law enforcement employees for promotion.
In addition, Mrs. Whitehead initiated a variety of employee and youth-based initiatives, including Quality Circles, employee recognition receptions, tuition reimbursement, County newsletters, Mystery Customer Program, wellness initiatives, and the Youth Commission.
She worked with local health care providers to engineer the development of employee benefits plans, ensuring that Chatham County employees had access to quality health care. Mrs. Whitehead passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on August 20, 1998.
