The Personnel Department is committed to serving you, the employee. You can count on
us for expert assistance, guidance and service for all of your human resource needs. Our
goal is to support a positive and productive work environment.
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.
The Personnel Department's job is to ensure that staff and managers receive
employment information and resources required to meet business needs and to have
a fulfilling work environment. We do this centrally, through City departments
and in collaboration with external and internal experts. City staff can contact
their own departmental Human Resources representative or us for
personnel-related tools, assistance, and information.
