HR Maverick

Lucas Velmer

I’m a self-driven HR professional who understands that process improvement and adaptability are keys to organizational improvement. I’m a compassionate and empathetic leader with over 20 years of experience in employee engagement, talent management, recruiting, culture development, mentoring & coaching employees, and policy development & implementation. I’ve been fortunate enough to work at all levels, including the strategic level, to develop and implement effective policies & procedures, and partner with executive management to support achieving organizational goals. I understand the impact strategic decisions have on employees which allows me to provide candid feedback and realistic outcomes on proposed changes. I’m skilled at building key relationships both internally and externally, enabling organizational improvement and increasing capabilities to achieve the organization’s desired results.

What words of advice and encouragement would you give to someone just starting out in HR?

Be patient and learn from others.


Perhaps you’ve had this happen to you: a candidate spends many hours convincing you that they are dependable, reliable, and exactly what you are looking for, and then leaves you and your organization high and dry when you offer them the position. This is reneging, and we must understand why it happens in order to prevent it and respond appropriately.
