Welcome to King County’s Human Resources Division. Our goal is to contribute to a workplace where all our employees are engaged and can thrive, and which will attract new employees. Our 14,000 plus employees work hard every day to serve our communities.

The Human Resources Division supports county agencies with consultation and oversight, professional growth and development, and policies that improve people’s lives – at work and beyond.  

We work together in a spirit of continuous improvement and collaboration to recruit, develop and retain the most talented and racially diverse employees and make sure everyone receives fair and equitable compensation.
