Often in assessing a company’s business
practices and legal compliance, the emphasis is on the company’s financial
records. It is equally important, however to assess HR policies and practices.
Additionally, poor business practices can lead to very expensive legal
sanctions. Just as regular companies ensure proper financial, legal and
management practices, HR audits can be valuable tools in assessing policies and
practices and ensuring that the company maintains a safe, competent and
respectful work environment. They are used to highlight areas of weakness in
the HR function, areas that can be improved and even areas where there are no
policies or procedures.
The HR audit is broken into areas of evaluation that include
what is needed before a company hires any employees all the way through the
process of recruiting new employees, bringing them aboard, enrolling them in
benefits programmes, safeguarding their confidential information and managing,
developing, retaining and supporting them. This workshop will take you through
the various phases of an HR audit, starting from the “Data Collection” phase
all the way through to the often neglected “Action Planning” phase.
The process is similar to one that an HR consultant might use
in conducting a standard HR audit. However, the structure and presentation of
the process will allow you to perform the audit yourself. The approach adopted
breaks the key areas commonly found in HR functions into categories similar to
those on which SHRM tests are based. Additional categories are further added to
contribute to a more rounded and comprehensive workshop.
Employment law is also an ever-changing field and, to avoid costly litigation, your policies, procedures and processes must reflect the law. In becoming a certified hr auditor, you can devise a strategy on how to remain legally compliant.[
