The idea of an HR audit usually instills groans of boredom or tedium, depending on who you ask. However, speak with any HR professional who completes a robust HR audit, and you’ll likely witness feelings of relief, empowerment, and achievement.

Executing an HR audit starts with thoughtful planning and clear goals as to what you want out of them. An audit can help to identify process gaps that miss or duplicate information. It can also pinpoint areas of success and help an organization to leverage those best practices. Probably the most valuable, however, is that internal audits will help you to catch areas of non-compliance before bigger problems crop up (think: Form I-9 non-compliance or payroll misses).

Essentially, an HR audit is an opportunity to tighten up processes so that aspects like recruitment, retention, onboarding, training, salary and compensation, payroll, and performance management all get the attention they need.

In this 1-hour webinar, you’ll understand specific benefits for HR audits, how to plan for HR audits, how to identify specific areas to focus on, and how to actually conduct HR audits.
