How an HR Audit = Success
While an HR Audit may not be one of the more glamorous parts of human resources, it is a key part of creating successful HR functions. A human resources audit provides a snapshot of the current state of HR and a pathway to creating HR policies and procedures that protect and support the business. It allows you to quickly identify and rank those areas of HR that might be a source of trouble for your business if not remedied. An audit covers the HR functions from the start to end of the employment cycle and all the functions in between.
Knowing where your business ranks with regard to compliance is information every business leader needs. Getting that information requires time, resources and expertise. Now might be the time for an HR audit for your business if ...
You are worried about compliance . .
You may be unaware of potential issues. Rules and regulations are always changing. You want peace of mind that your human resources functions are compliant. Non-compliance costs you and your business time, money, and employees. An HR assessment identifies issues and provides guidance on fixing them.
You are spending too much time in the HR function . . .
You are a business owner or non-HR leader, and you find yourself spending too much time in the weeds of HR because your processes are outdated or non-existent. An HR assessment provides best practice recommendations along with the opportunity to engage with an expert consultant to put plans and processes in place.
Your business is growing . . .
Your business is growing and you need a solid HR foundation to support that growth. Eliminate the chaos that comes with not having policies and procedures. An HR assessment looks at the areas of your business that touch employees, provides feedback on your current state, and makes recommendations to help you build an HR foundation that will grow with you.
