Human Resources and Labor Relations





Karlyn Semlow, Director

Human Resources and Labor Relations

I began my career with Macomb County in 2000, as a Human Resources Coordinator, overseeing the County's recruitment and selection operations.  In 2007, I joined the Human Resources Department's Labor Relations team assisting with labor and employee relations activities and contract negotiations.  I was promoted to a Service Director in March 2011, where I enjoy the opportunity to work as a strategic partner with Macomb County’s department leaders, while leading a full service delivery team dedicated to servicing our employees.  Before joining Macomb County, I worked as a Human Resources professional in the market research and long-term care industries.  I am proud to work for Macomb County and I value the opportunity to partner with other dedicated public servants, and make a difference in my community.
