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.
