Since 2017, Leath HR Group has been on a mission to change the way companies and employees utilize Human Resources. Lisa Leath started out providing businesses the kind of global HR solutions she knew they needed while maintaining a local, human connection. What began as a solo journey of entrepreneurship after an impressive tenure in Corporate America, has now become a team of HR experts that bring decades of experience in all facets of human resources across a variety of industries. And most importantly,
a continued mission to change the perception of HR by providing experts who are relatable, supportive, and true partners in business. One way we’re doing that is through the integration of technology into the way we work with our clients.
The face of HR has been on a transformational path for the past several decades and we do not see that changing anytime soon. It was not that long ago that we knew HR professionals as the Personnel department, specializing in executing payroll and other administrative tasks. When you were called to HR as an employee, it meant layoffs, terminations, and other disciplinary measures. We are on a mission to rewrite that reputation and are using technology to do that with the creation of Leath HR technology,
“WorkTok,” and an upcoming YouTube channel where we’ll break down real workplace situations that you just can’t make up.
As modern HR leaders, we are no different than any other business leaders, except we specialize in people versus product. We show the same characteristics, such as empathy, courage, and vision, as any other executive in an organization. And companies that have learned to bring HR into the conversation around people and business, are far
more successful in executing strategy and changes that create positive impact for the entire organization. That’s why WorkTok has been so game changing - allowing supervisors to do micro check-ins with their employees on the fly.
As business continues to adapt to meet the ever-changing demands of the consumer, HR continues to adapt to meet those same needs for the employee. The Great Resignation, a phrase all too familiar to businesses, will only continue if we do not have great HR leaders leaning in to provide influence around what is important to employees. With updates to technology and now supporting teams that work virtually and across the globe, it is more critical than ever to provide employees a great place to work.
As 2021 closes, we’re witnessing quit rates at an all-time high, at over 4 million resignations in one month, September. We have seen firsthand
when organizations do not prioritize the employee experience and recent headlines have exposed why employees continue to look for new opportunities.
We want to make sure our clients do not make those same mistakes. Depending on the business or industry, our clients do not all have equal resources, and we continue to find ways to fill in those gaps by remaining close to the pulse of HR trends and making them applicable to all sized businesses. We’re looking forward to advancing the way we support businesses by creating a new, entertaining YouTube channel, all about solving real employee situations with HR experts. Look for episode 1 to drop in January 2022!
The past 18-24 months has taught us many things and we are able to take advantage of those lessons. Employees are telling us they want more flexibility and support, companies are telling us they need HR to be embedded into all facets of the business, and technology is allowing us to do both. We intend to use technology to reach a wider audience by offering additional virtual solutions in the upcoming year as we continue our mission to change the perception of HR.
As we look at what's next for Leath HR Group, we continue to think of innovative ways to provide cutting-edge HR solutions that companies need in order to continue their success. We recognize that companies just starting out with limited resources also need our expertise and support. Whether you manage 1 employee or 1000, that employee deserves your very best. We are excited about our upcoming projects in 2022 that will serve that purpose. We are using our knowledge in a way that will provide valuable resources and that's fun for us.
As Lisa always says, “we like what we do and we hope it’s contagious”!
