Investing in You

Dear fellow King County employee,

Over the past few years, we’ve done a lot of work to make King County a workplace that supports you, your ideas and your passion for public service. Through our annual employee survey, Equity and Social Justice focus groups, and engagement action plans we asked you what you need to do your best work and have been acting on what you said.

Today I am launching Investing in You, which builds on our employee-focused efforts in Equity and Social Justice, Best-Run Government: Employees and Continuous Improvement and brings them together into a single employee-focused strategy.

The goal of Investing in You is to make King County a great place to work, where you have equitable opportunities to learn and advance, try new ideas, be healthy and safe, and receive fair, competitive compensation and tools to be your best at work.

It prioritizes actions in six goal areas to create a workplace that fully represents the diversity of our communities and where you have the tools, resources and support to innovate, achieve your career goals and do the work that you care deeply about.

Please watch this short video about Investing in You and check out this webpage for more information on the six goal areas and key actions.
