Lori Kleiman
HR Speaker, Author, Facilitator

Get HR done the right way without losing your mind and adding value to your business.

Lori Kleiman’s HR mantra comes from her innate no-nonsense approach and 30+ years of experience as a Human Resources consultant and entrepreneur running human resources departments of all sizes.

Through keynote speeches, dynamic workshops, how-to books, and other programs, Lori transforms the way Human Resources professionals work and the impact they make at the company level.

Lori believes that people are what makes or breaks a business and that HR is the function that makes it all happen. Her passion for Human Resources comes through in her engaging, fun style that leaves audiences inspired and energized.

Having walked in your shoes, Lori has Human Resources professionals’ and small business best interest at heart. She knows the constant sense of overwhelm, the daily struggles, and the overload of information one must master to get the job done right. Being an entrepreneur, she also understands the perspective (and demands) of CEOs and business owners.

That’s why as a speaker, author, and facilitator, Lori’s mission is to bring HR efficiency and business strategy together to fuel growth.

Her programs focus on making life easier for all people responsible for HR – non-HR professionals, HR Departments of 1 and larger HR teams – by addressing their unique challenges and providing real solutions that fit their resources. Her practical takeaways help them stop spinning their wheels, make sense of important industry updates, simplify crucial but time-consuming tasks, and turn Human Resources into an engine that drives business results and improves the bottom line.

Lori has spoken at over 40 conferences and events, including annually at the Society for Human Resources Management National Conference since 2014.
