Human Resources Audit and Planning

Examining your HR practices can be a daunting task. Our audit experience can help identify areas of concern and help you create a plan to operationalize quickly and efficiently.

What is Human Resources Audit & Planning?

Human Resources Audit and Planning Services are designed to help organizations assess their HR functions and identify opportunities for improvement. Our comprehensive audit process involves a thorough review of HR policies, procedures, and practices to ensure compliance with applicable laws and regulations, aligned with the organization’s strategic goals, and effective in attracting, developing, and retaining talent. We can conduct various audits, including compliance, risk mitigation, and performance.

Our Process

The key to successful HR auditing is addressing risk mitigation while creating value. Risk will mainly look for areas where you can mitigate legal trouble or employment-related lawsuits. Value creation will improve your processes and policies to maximize employees’ value or attract better ones.

Compliance audits ensure that organizations meet legal and regulatory requirements, such as wage and hourly laws, anti-discrimination laws, and safety regulations. This risk mitigation audit is highly recommended for organizations looking to take corrective action and avoid costly penalties and legal disputes.

During this audit process, we work closely with our clients to identify areas of strength and weakness, assess the effectiveness of current HR programs, and provide recommendations for improvement. We will provide guidance on best practices and emerging HR trends to help our clients stay ahead of the curve.

A performance audit will look at the effectiveness of management feedback mechanisms with employees, including performance management and processes. This kind of audit will ensure that your HR department is supporting a positive and inclusive work environment.

Evaluating your organization’s ability to attract, develop, and retain talent in a competitive marketplace may involve a review of HR practices related to talent acquisition, compensation and benefits, employee development and training, and performance management. This could include looking at industry benchmarks as well as the effectiveness of incentive and bonus programs in driving employee performance and engagement.

A function-specific HR audit is a comprehensive review of one specific area of your HR processes or policies. This type of audit allows organizations to identify strengths and weaknesses within a specific HR function and make improvements to optimize their processes and policies. Examples may include payroll, policies, or record keeping.

An HR audit can provide a comprehensive and objective assessment of your HR functions, helping you improve compliance, reduce risk, optimize processes and policies, attract top talent, and support strategic decision-making.

Big Grassy First Nation engaged Imagination consulting to assist us in developing our Human Resources Succession Plan.
