How long since your last HR Audit?
No business can be run without people and as such the human resources department is the beating heart of any company. Ensuring that a company’s duties towards employees are carried out in an efficient and timely manner not only keeps everything running smoothly, the employees coming to work and the company out of court but can also boost staff morale and engender a community spirit that raises productivity.
In a tough modern business environment subject to both UK and EU legislation it can be hard to stay abreast of all the changes in your legal and statutory obligations towards employees. Even if your human resources department is well staffed, the pace of change can overtake you over a number of years. All this makes regular HR Auditing a must. As well as spotting anything you may have overlooked in-house, HR consultants can also introduce you to the latest innovations in software and procedure to improve the overall efficiency of your HR procedures to cut costs and reduce the chances of problems occurring.
What Involved in an HR Audit?
As part of an HR Audit, human resources consultants will systematically review your HR processes and procedures including all employee documentation, reporting methods, data storage and communication.
A typical HR audit will look at:
- Policies, handbooks and employee contracts
- Recruitment processes
- Induction processes
- Training and development programmes
- Performance management systems
- Administrative efficiency
- Employee relations
Where such systems are non-existent and desirable, the HR consultants can design them and help you to implement them. If there are sticking points, conflicts or inefficiencies in existing systems they will be identified and remedies suggested and put into practice. If your human resources audit turns up the need for further training for in-house staff, this can be organised.
In short, HR Auditing blows the cobwebs from your current human resources operations to ensure that your employees, and indeed the company itself, benefits from cutting edge HR intelligence and technology.
Sourcing HR Auditing
When looking for a human resources consultancy to carry out an HR audit price shouldn’t be your only consideration. Getting several quotations for HR auditing is important not only advisable to minimise cost but also check the credentials and style of the HR consultants you’re considering. After all, the auditors will have to come into your organisation and potentially tell you you’re doing things all wrong, so finding someone who you can accept that kind of advice from is vital. Location will also be important as several trips may be required and you don’t want to be billed for additional expenses.
