As the director of human resources at United Community Center in Milwaukee, Lukischa Ramos is responsible for leading a team of HR professionals who oversee more than 500 employees.
Ramos leads people through change, adapts to changing rules and regulations quickly, and advocates for employees, said Laura Gutierrez, executive director of the UCC.
“She was instrumental in helping develop the agency’s COVID policies. United Community Center’s schools were among the first schools to return to in-person learning due to the preparation of Ramos and her team in ensuring a safe workplace,” Gutierrez said.
Ramos also oversees employee benefits, including ensuring the agency can provide insurance with no premiums and keep costs under a 5% increase year over year.
“Lukischa has helped UCC overcome many challenges while also maintaining a forward-looking mindset to ensure we can continue to grow and meet the needs of our community. Lukischa’s efforts to cultivate and care for our employees is essential to our success,” said Gutierrez.
