 Benefits

The Personnel Department provides a variety of human resource services for the City of Seattle's diverse workforce. We do this so that employees are managed fairly, are well-trained, supported, and assigned job duties to accomplish City business goals in a cost-effective, efficient and safe manner. Along with human resource services, we also provide human resource tools, expert assistance and information to our internal and external customers.

People are the City of Seattle's greatest asset. The Personnel Department for the City is responsible for centrally setting the pace for human resources services: identifying, hiring, and retaining our dynamic, diverse workforce as well as developing and administering our compensation and benefits program to create a quality employee experience.
