An HR audit is the full review of a company’s HR procedures, strategies, policies, and practices. This occurs because an organization wants to ensure that its policies are in line with best practice and because they are seeking any ways in which they can improve. An HR audit takes a lot of time and resources to undertake.
Reviewing the current state of HR practices in the business can help an HR team decide whether they are behaving adequately in all areas. Areas of concern may include recruitment, remuneration, organizational development, and more. Once the results are in, the HR team can decide which areas they will work on.
