The Seattle Department of Human Resources provides 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 Seattle Department of Human Resources

hiring, and retaining our dynamic, diverse workforce as well as developing and administering
our compensation and benefits program to create a quality employee experience.
