How does your HR measure up?
Admit it, you have policies in your handbook that no one follows. Why aren’t they followed? Your turnover is high. What impediments are there to your organizational success? Do your HR goals match your company goals? Are employees’ needs being met? Is HR structured for success?
From financial audits to health and safety, enlisting guidance from seasoned professionals to identify areas for improvement is essential to the sound future of any organization. At the HR Team, our HR audits are more than just looking at compliance: we have a process to evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of the overall HR function and pinpoint any potential areas of concern.
Compliance doesn’t have to be complex. Compliance isn’t just written laws; it’s also practices. Company needs as well as employment laws and regulations are ever-changing, so it’s no wonder many organizations simply can’t keep up. An HR audit can help identify areas of risk and potentially mitigate your liability exposure. Comprehensive audits from The HR Team will reveal many problem areas, with the goal of rectifying them before they become unmanageable, or even more unmanageable than they are currently. Many times, the audit process can help identify issues before they become serious employment concerns.
Take a leap ahead.
Audits from The HR Team are critically important, detailed tools that accurately assess the competitiveness of your HR strategies and processes. We know that what works for one company may not work for another, so we look deep under the hood into your unique environment. We don’t just ask obligatory questions to a few people; we survey the entire organization. We talk to your people, your managers, and your HR team to determine what is and isn’t working.
A major benefit of HR audit is its use as a highly effective goal tracking tool, which can be a significant help to your organization in achieving best practices. These results can be invaluable in making the case for the need for specific HR programs. Where relevant programs are already in place, improved audit results from year to year can confirm your program’s success.
Prepare for whatever the future holds. In all aspects of business, you need to plan ahead, and HR is no exception. If you’re considering hiring more staff or reducing headcount, your policies don’t just need to be compliant, they also need to reflect who you are and what you’re doing. The HR Team fully understands the importance of HR alignment with the other goals of your organization, no matter the size of your company or the industry you’re in. You can rely on our knowledgeable strategic experts to ensure that you have robust best practices in place to face the future with confidence.
