BerganKDV Human Capital Management Practice Grows with Addition of Two Key Staff

Lorilei Christner, Payroll Implementation Manager, and Micah Zirnhelt, Human Capital Management Consulting Manager, recently joined BerganKDV’s Human Capital Management (HCM) team.

Christner manages the payroll implementation team and ensures that clients’ needs are being met as the HCM software system is deployed. She has more than 25 years in both people leadership and project management, holds a professional project management certificate and is Six Sigma Green Belt certified.

Zirnhelt will help clients better utilize their K-Pay HCM modules to get the most benefit from this robust platform. For the past 15 years, Zirnhelt has worked in human resources and benefits administration and specializes in human resources outsourcing implementation and support. He is a Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM) Senior Certified Professional and holds a Senior Professional of Human Resources certification.

“We are excited to have these key players on our team,” said President Earl Edeburn, “Lorilei and Micah will take an already great solution and make it even better. Their knowledge base will provide clients with innovative ways to solve their HCM challenges.”

The firm’s HCM software solution, K-Pay, combines the power of workforce management with human resources, talent acquisition, onboarding, performance management, benefits and compensation, and payroll into one unified cloud platform.

“The addition of Lorilei and Micah will keep the momentum going as we continue to build out our best-in-class HCM team,” said firm Director of Sales Lee Roberts, “As businesses grow, they need a system and team that will grow with them. Our K-Pay platform and team give them the tools they need to recruit and hire the best talent, get new hires onboard and out in the field producing results. At the end of the day, team members like Lorilei and Micah help our clients gain a competitive advantage by helping them migrate to a scalable, single database solution.”

The K-Pay solution is one of the most rapidly growing practices in the firm, with nearly 200 companies signing up for services in the past year. In 2018, BerganKDV hit a milestone, with the highest implementation rate in the history of the firm and was recognized by Kronos at the Independent Payroll Providers Association conference with a top sales award. BerganKDV is a top tier partner in the Kronos network for the percentage of full suite clients that consume payroll, timekeeping, and human resources.
