An audit can provide your organization valuable insight on organizational deficiencies and streamline your current processes which will give you extra time to do the things you really want to focus on. A systematic review of the current state of HR practices will help you know what you don’t know and provide reasonable assurance your people, policies, and programs get the attention needed to thrive.

In order for your audit of process to be most effective, it is important that it be comprehensive and focus on the following key areas:

  • HR Responsibilities
  • Provisional Considerations
  • Reporting & Recordkeeping
  • Job Analysis & Descriptions
  • Recruiting & Application
  • Interviewing & Selection
  • Hiring & Onboarding
  • Personnel Files
  • Employee Handbook
  • Employee Relations
  • Employee Development
  • Performance Management
  • Pay Practices
  • Benefit Programs
  • Termination & Outplacement
  • HR Information System
  • Health & Safety
  • Workforce & Succession
  • Planning Organizational Culture

As you focus on each topic, be sure to look at current practices and any policies that relate. Ensure that current processes are in compliance with laws and regulations. Also, be mindful of anything that can be done to streamline the current process. Ensure that the work flow is smooth and free of redundancies. Analyze your results and adjust current practices as necessary.
