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.
