Lisa Crowley, human resource manager for West Allis-based Winter Services, succeeded in the recruiting, hiring and on-boarding of approximately 2,000 seasonal employees in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Winter Services is a commercial snow removal company, and Crowley has gone through the process with seasonal employees — a complicated and arduous endeavor year after year, according to Winter Services CFO Patrick Noggle.

This year, adding the complexity of a global pandemic required Crowley to quickly adapt in order to accommodate work-from-home schedules, social distancing for interviews and training, and a candidate pool often hesitant to consider seasonal employment because of COVID-related federal unemployment and stimulus benefits.

Crowley successfully worked through each one of these hurdles to ensure that Winter Services would be prepared with trained staff to continue to serve its customers throughout the 2020-21 winter season.

Crowley has more than 21 years of experience in administration, management and human resources. She holds a business management associates degree from Harper College. She continues growing her knowledge and networking skills by regularly attending seminars, trainings and roundtable meetings.
