Don’t let your HR function be a victim 10.01.17 - Kimberly Bradshaw Share this item: Twitter LinkedIn Email Now that the mince pies have all been eaten and the tree and decorations put away, thoughts turn to the year ahead and starting as we mean to go on. Many of our clients tell us they are keen to improve the way they handle the people side of their business this year – a HR audit can help them achieve just that. At the beginning of last year The Independent newspaper rolled out a survey to uncover how many of us actually stick to our resolutions. While over half of adults take the time to make resolutions, fewer than 10% manage to keep them for more than a few months. A common mistake is people making too many resolutions or them being unrealistic. Dealing more effectively with your “people” need not fall victim to this. An independent and comprehensive review of an organisation’s HR function will assess both legal compliance and best practice to identify potential risks (both legal and financial) to the organisation and recommend ways to enhance and improve current practices. Conducting regular HR reviews is an integral part of delivering compliant and effective HR solutions for any organisation. It not only highlights high risk areas, such as outdated contracts or policies, but also helps standardise processes and align HR goals with strategic business goals. Unlike other offerings which tend to focus upon a specific area, such as contracts or policies, we provide clients with an evaluation of the whole spectrum of HR activities, with focus on the following key areas: HR strategy Recruitment and resourcing Staff management Training and development Compensation and reward Employee relations Termination/Leaver process Health & safety Policies and procedures Personnel files How we can help Buzzacott HR Consultancy’s HR Audit service is an independent and comprehensive review of an organisation’s HR function.
