What is an HR Audit?
The HR Audit is the process of evaluating HR policies, practices, and procedures and also reviewing the performance of the Human Resource Department and its activities undertaken.
A slower time of year might be more productive than the organization’s busy season. Likewise, the end or beginning of the year can help an organization benchmark improvements year over year.
The HR Audit is conducted to identify the lapses, shortcomings, gaps in the implementation of HR functions, and suggest remedial actions if any.
An organization can hire an outside company to perform the hr audit or it can instruct the HR department to perform an internal hr audit.
The goal is to look for trouble spots and identify ways for improvement.
An HR audit is the only way you can fully assess whether your HR processes and policies are benefiting or harming your overall business.
