Office of the City Clerk receives recognition from the Community Employment Alliance
Seattle – The Community Employment Alliance recognized the Seattle City Clerk's office last week as one of the 11 Washington businesses to receive this year's "Outstanding Employer Award."
"The Office of the City Clerk has really stepped up to become a model for best practices in recruiting, hiring, and retaining people with disabilities," said Council President Sally J. Clark. "Thank you to Community Employment Alliance for the recognition."
The "Outstanding Employer Award" honors Washington businesses, government agencies and non-profit corporations that have made exceptional efforts to employ people with disabilities; and who by their recruitment, hiring, retention and promotion policies are role models in their community.
"We are privileged to serve as a partner with the Community Employment Alliance. Our supported employee gains knowledge and skills and our organization benefits from their valuable contributions," said City Clerk Monica Martinez Simmons.
The Office of the City Clerk serves as administrative head of the Legislative Department by providing access to the City of Seattle's legislative process, local laws, policies, and regulations, ensuring the integrity and preservation of the public record. The Clerk's role, as impartial custodian of the City's official records, ensures process education and access to information about the City's actions and policies.
