MAY 17, 2022 – The employment practice team at Davis Wright Tremaine has been recognized for its skill and commitment in helping clients manage the high-pressure challenges of the recent global pandemic.

At a meeting last week of the HR Roundtable, a Seattle-area society for HR professionals in the tech industry, and a sister organization, the Global HR Consortium, Davis Wright received the "Above and Beyond Award." Kate Tylee Herz and Missy Mordy, partners in the firm's employment services group, were on hand to accept the honor.

Over the past 2+ years, Herz and Mordy, together with their colleagues, have provided bespoke webinars and virtual roundtable sessions, weekly and monthly, to help HR practitioners navigate the complex and ever-shifting rules and recommendations surrounding COVID at the local, state, and federal levels.

"DWT has gone above and beyond in its support of our members during extremely challenging times," said Carol Olsby, founder of the HR Roundtable and co-founder of the Global HR Consortium. "Our members heavily relied on DWT as a reliable, premier source for knowledge, insights, and practical solutions."

Davis Wright was a founding member of both the HR Roundtable (more than three decades ago) and the Global HR Consortium (15+ years ago). Together the organizations represent nearly 200 domestic and global companies located in the Seattle area.

Said Herz: “We are honored to partner with Carol's amazing organizations and grateful to her for creating this remarkable HR community."
