HR Audit

Tool for evaluating the HR activities within an organisation


An HR Audit is a tool for evaluating the HR activities within an organisation. An HR Audit clearly investigates the current policies, procedures and practices covered under your current HRM system and evaluates how these activities support the organisation’s strategy. As such, an HR Audit is the first step in proactively identifying improvement opportunities.

We visit your premises and gather information through interviews, questionnaires, review, research and observation. After detailed analysis of the information, we propose recommendations for a practical improvement plan on how the function might better assist your organisation in meeting its business objectives.
