Archbright is the go-to resource for employers in Washington, Idaho, and Oregon. At our core, we offer HR Advice and Legal Counsel through annual membership. Our focus is helping companies elevate workplace performance—by helping them be compliant with the hundreds of employment laws and build a more engaged workforce.
We were founded in 1936 by a group of employers who saw a need for a business league to help promote employer cooperation and coordination in the field of labor and employee relations.
In 1947, we became Washington Employers. This allowed us to expand and provide additional services.
In the 1950s, we added Group Healthcare and Pension Plans.
In the 1980s, our Workers’ Compensation Program was born.
In the 1990s and 2000s, we expanded again to add HR services, including HR and Compensation Consulting, Employee and Leadership Training, and more.
In 2014, we added Payroll and Retirement programs and at the same time became Archbright.
In 2015, we opened our Spokane office to increase our level of service for our Eastern Washington and Idaho members.
Then, in 2017, we joined our Kent and Seattle-based teams into one office in Georgetown, Seattle’s oldest neighborhood. Our office is a welcoming space where Archbright members and employees can connect and collaborate.
For over 80 years, we have helped our members improve business outcomes and mitigate risk and we look forward to the next 80 years.
Our mission is to tackle the complexities of the workplace, so our members can focus on the passion of their business. We treat every engagement like it is the most important issue we have, because it is. It's yours. And that makes it ours.
“The money I pay is worth every penny! The Hotline, their Retro program and trainings are all critical to me doing my job.”
“I like the quality and the depth and range of their scope of services. I have absolute confidence that they’ll deliver.”
“They treat their members very, very well. They check with one another to research the best answers when a member has a difficult question. You’re not going to get that richness from a series of individual specialists.”
At Archbright, we see diversity as everything that makes an employee who they are and we want all employees to be comfortable bringing their entire selves to work every day. We believe our individual backgrounds, perspectives, and passions help us grow and solve problems that move us all forward. We encourage and support both positive and learning interactions through workforce diversity that will help all employees feel comfortable encountering individuals with different life experiences.
