Over the last five years, Ms. Mitchell’s primary focus has been finding ways to invest in and support our most valuable asset — our employees. Ms. Mitchell’s leadership has included positively transforming the County’s operational human resources functions, implementing a national award-winning Employee Wellness Program, launching a new employee engagement initiative, and developing new and innovative ways to invest in hard-working County employees.
“I’m grateful that my partners on the County Board recognized Ms. Mitchell’s commitment to recruiting, hiring, developing, and retaining the premiere workforce we have here in Milwaukee County by voting to confirm her reappointment today,” County Executive Chris Abele said. “Having the continuity of Ms. Mitchell’s dedicated leadership will ensure that our ongoing efforts to expand diversity and inclusion initiatives and strengthen our workforce culture will be a success.”
“It’s been a great honor to serve Milwaukee County over the past five years and be a part of some significant transformations, but I know the best is yet to come for our workforce and our community,” Kerry Mitchell said. “I appreciate the vote of confidence from the County Board today, as well as the support I’ve received from my colleagues and from leaders in the community, and look forward to a continued conversation with all of them about how to make Milwaukee County an even better employer.”
