Listen to Paul Walsh on Measuring The Quality Of HR Services

It is vitally important for HR to keep pace with the demands of dynamic business environments and legal frameworks. Unfortunately many HR functions have evolved without being fully aware of these demands, and are either totally reactive or are driven by their specialist outlook, not taking into consideration the imperative of supporting the organisation, its business and its strategies. The HR audit is used to highlight areas of weakness, areas that can be improved and even areas where there are no policies or procedures.

Employment law is also an ever-changing field and, to avoid costly litigation, your policies, procedures and processes must reflect the law. The HR audit is an essential preventative strategy to ensure you remain legally compliant.

  • The HR Audit – Something To Welcome?
  • Initial Analysis, Audit Methodology – Instruments And Deliverables
  • Scope Of The Audit
  • Measuring HR And Auditing Against Business Needs
  • The Audit Findings, Feedback And Action, And Taking HR To The Next Level
