King County expresses gratitude for administrative professional employees 

King County celebrated its more than 2,300 administrative professional employees last week at the 4th Annual Administrative Professionals Day Recognition Event.

This year’s event focused on the theme of “Gratitude” for the many contributions of administrative professionals to county government, and their work in helping all employees provide the best possible service to customers.

“Often administrative professionals and those who work behind the scenes don’t always get the recognition… but we all know you make it happen,” Whitney Abrams, Chief People Officer, said at the event. “Providing opportunities to not only recognize the great work that you do, but also to identify career development needs and resources for administrative professionals, is something I am passionate about.”

Other guest speakers included King County Councilmember Claudia Balducci; Stacey McQuade, Director of the Career and Culture Division of the Department of Human Resources; Norm Alberg, Director of the Records and Licensing Services Division of the Department of Executive Services; Rhonda Mendel, KCIT Executive Assistant; and Amos Walters, Administrative Staff Assistant with the Department of Assessments.

The event is part of the Administrative Professionals Program, which was created to identify career development needs and resources for administrative professionals countywide.

“On behalf of Dow Constantine and the Senior Leadership Team, I want to express my gratitude to you in recognition of your contributions and accomplishments,” Whitney said. “We cannot do what we do every day without you and the care and expertise and passion that you bring to your work every day.”
