In our latest episode, HR expert Keri Ohlrich discusses the misconceptions surrounding the HR profession. Despite popular perception, Keri talks about the significant impact that a skilled HR team can have on staff and business development. People are complex, so the HR field isn’t for the faint of heart. It’s about finding a balance between fighting for employees and meeting the needs of the business, all while prioritizing healthy company culture. 



  • HR is often seen as a necessary evil for compliance purposes and not as a valuable department that can accelerate business growth. 

  • The HR profession is complex because people aren’t like machines, as arising personal and professional circumstances are impossible to predict.

  • Pursuing a career in HR solely out of love for people can cause HR professionals to become jaded due to the excessive time spent with the “rule-breakers.” 

  • There are so many things that HR professionals can do to fight for employees while, at the same time, balancing the needs of the business.

  • A skilled HR team can provide valuable insight into understanding and articulating a company's culture, both of which are crucial for attracting and retaining talent.
