HUMAN RESOURCES STRATEGIES

HR Audits: A Human Resources Audit is a comprehensive method to review current human resources policies, procedures, documentation and systems to identify needs for improvement and enhancement of the HR function as well as to ensure compliance with ever-changing rules and regulations.  An Audit involves systematically reviewing all aspects of human resources.

Sections of review include:

  • Hiring and Orientation
  • Benefits
  • Compensation
  • Performance evaluation process
  • Termination process and exit interviews
  • Job descriptions
  • Form review
  • Personnel file review

The purpose of an HR Audit is to recognize strengths and identify any needs for improvement in the human resources function.  A properly executed Audit will reveal problem areas and provide recommendations and suggestions for the remedy of these problems.  Some of the reasons to conduct such a review include:

  • Ensuring the effective utilization of the organization’s human resources
  • Reviewing compliance concerns with a myriad of administrative regulations
  • Instilling a sense of confidence in management and the human resources function
  • Maintaining or enhancing the organization’s and the department’s reputation in the community
  • Performing “due diligence” review for donors and community stakeholders
  • Establishing a baseline for future improvement for the function

Team Building: Successful teams are both smart (have the necessary training and technical skill sets) and healthy.  Healthy teams have less politics, confusion and absenteeism; they achieve their goals faster and move past issues/obstacles easier.
