As human resources professionals, we see our fair share of compliance and legal issues. And there are plenty of people who want to pontificate that we’re not being strategic when we focus on compliance. Reality is, compliance and legal issues impact every aspect of business. It’s not just a human resources thing.
We can keep our “heads in the sand” where our obligations toward compliance are concerned. Sorry, couldn’t resist the pun. Our friends at Kronos understand this. Today’s Time Well Spent will make you smile.
Even issues like regulatory compliance involve a strategy. Our goal as human resources professionals is to be compliant within our corporate culture. That’s the challenge. To create strategy that’s both compliant and complementary isn’t an easy task.
How can we make that happen? Well, the first step is finding the right partners. Whether it’s your lawyer, consultant, freelancer or services provider, those individuals and organizations can help balance the need for compliance within the existing culture. Use them. Tap into their resources and expertise.
