Seattle Region Partnership

The Seattle Region Partnership is a multi-sector initiative founded by the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, Seattle Foundation, City of Seattle, and King County. Established in 2016, SRP was created to streamline the way that business connects to the region’s workforce, economic, and education systems, providing local residents access to middle-wage careers. SRP serves a critical function of ensuring our partners are connecting to a regional talent pipeline, while simultaneously working to create a coordinated, equitable, and responsive workforce system.

Our Initiatives

RECRUITING, HIRING, & ONBOARDING: Access talent from diverse, untapped sources to save on hiring
ADVANCEMENT & RETENTION: Ensure skills and qualification meet your business workforce needs
