Q&A with Lori Kleiman

Kleiman, a Chicago-based business expert with more than 25 years of experience advising companies on HR issues, has supplied some frequently asked questions—and answers—to this HR topic.

Q: There is so much to the HR function. How do I know if I am doing everything right?

A: It is critical that HR professionals—and those responsible for the HR function—take time to step back and evaluate processes. This needs to be done for compliance, as well as for the analysis of processes that may be in place.

Q: How can I help our executives see the strategic value I bring to the organization?

A: Completing an HR assessment and then being strategic about your goals for the year is a great way to highlight the HR function and what you are adding to the attainment of the goals for the company. Be sure you are setting out goals that are important to the leaders and focused on driving your organization forward.

Your HR assessment may reveal that you could benefit from automated systems or software, especially for cumbersome processes such as time and attendance tracking.
