HR Is No Small Matter to Small Business

As most small organizations grow, the people who lead them see

human resources as more of a distraction than a help.

We know this because our proprietary human resources survey of nearly 450 companies, averaging 78 employees, has pinpointed this as a top concern. Business leaders would rather run the organization than stay on top of HR compliance and HR department issues. But hiring a part- or full-time HR person our HR outsourcing doesn’t makes sense.

Lori Kleiman—through 30 years as an HR professional and consultant, focusing on small businesses—has seen this conundrum. She designed a program to help business leaders focus their efforts and make smart choices.

HR is No Small Matter to Small Business is an interactive program that helps company owners and managers avoid four major problems that can cripple long-term growth:

  • How do you know if you’re paying people properly?
  • How do you successfully recruit the right employees?
  • What can you do to keep good people?
  • What laws do you need to be aware of, and how do you stay on top of them?

Lori delivers facts, tips, tricks and best practices in a way that appeals to business leaders: with a sense of humor, a bias toward actions that improve their operations right away, and practical resources and tools to support their progress. She also customizes the program to the needs of each audience—from 45 minutes to a full day—and can focus on the special needs of a particular industry.

Let Lori help your small business audience pull together all the pieces of their HR function, to support their continued growth!
