If you know that your people planning and HR could be serving your business better, but you’re not sure where to start, an HR review might be useful.
What is an HR review?
An HR review, HR audit or HR health check is used to investigate whether you have the right people tools and processes in place to help drive your business forward. As part of this process, we will also have a face-to-face meeting with you in order to get a better understanding of your compliance with employment law and HR best practices. Following the investigation, you will receive a report detailing our findings and HR recommendations.
HR audit checklist
Three main areas we review when we conduct an HR audit are:
- People policies and procedures,
- Employee engagement, and
- Compliance with employment laws.
As part of the audit process, we will work with you very closely to review your policies and procedures and also make recommendations for how these can be improved or suggest other procedures that might be useful. We will also review your current people practices, in order to identify opportunities for improvement to help increase employee engagement and productivity.
Why is an HR audit important?
As part of the HR audit process, we will investigate whether your business is compliant with current employment law, legislation and best practices. This will involve us reviewing all your paperwork and suggesting areas for improvement. Proactively undertaking an HR audit helps to reduce the risk of an employee raising a claim, or you getting flagged for not complying with employment laws.
An HR audit or review can sound daunting, but it needn’t be. We will work with you collaboratively and build relationships so that we can support your business long term, and help you to implement positive change.
HR review recommendations
Following the audit, we will likely suggest areas of improvement, or changes that you can put in place in order to improve your HR practices. It is completely up to you whether you implement these changes yourself, or have us on-board to help you to make these changes. Our goal is to conduct comprehensive HR audits to provide businesses with the information they need to know to ensure HR compliance.
