Fire HR Now! Working with HR to Shape Up or Ship Out

“HR departments cost money and spend the day telling managers what they can’t do.”

Fire HR NowHow do executives know the value that HR departments can bring? Should it have a limited, administrative function—or HR outsourced altogether? Or should HR be expected to have a transformative role—adding value to the top and bottom line every day?

In Fire HR Now! Lori Kleiman has designed a process to help executives make informed decisions about their HR function.  Originally created for CEOs that are frustrated with the administrative and rule enforcement attitude of HR departments.  This book also provides HR professionals the tools and tips they need to address and align with business executives. Practical suggestions encourage the reader to evaluate their current skills, goals and aspirations to determine if the current situation will meet their needs.

Why did Lori take on this controversial title about HR departments and how executives can work better with their HR managers.  Listen to Lori Kleiman’s thoughts:

This book will help business leaders end it and embrace HR in an effective and affordable way.

Lori Kleiman’s motivation for this topic is centered in her 30 years of experience working with small business owners who don’t have, and don’t need, a formal HR department.
