Best-Run Government: Employees
King County’s goal is to become the best-run government in the United States and earn public trust through effective stewardship of resources, improved performance, continuous process improvement, and results that reflect our region’s values.
The County’s 14,000 employees are critical to transforming our government. The County is creating a workplace that supports employees and their ideas, provides competitive pay and benefits, treats employees with respect, promotes racial diversity and cultural responsiveness, and gives employees equitable opportunities for advancement and the tools and resources they need to succeed.
That’s why we launched Best-Run Government: Employees – to modernize our recruitment, development, compensation, and business systems, and ensure we become an employer of choice where current employees can thrive and which attracts racially diverse and engaged future employees to serve the people of King County.
