Over the last few years there has been a significant change in the importance and value of an organization's human resources. As a result, the HR auditing process is changing and the value to be derived from HR auditing is increasing and becoming increasingly more important.
HR audits have evolved from a simple checklist of dos and don'ts and periodic affirmative action plans to a comprehensive, sustainable process that:
- Is an integral part of the organization's internal controls, due diligence, and risk management
- Is a fundamental activity of strategic management
- Uses sophisticated auditing products and consulting services
Increasingly HR audits are now conducted of HR rather than by HR.
In many organizations, HR audits are a key and routine audit activity that is performed by internal auditing or risk management staff. These audits review strategic, operational, and compliance issues and help senior management plan for and manage critical organizational issues. In other organizations, HR audits are implement to solve specific problems or respond to employment practices liability claims. They help management assess and respond to specific HR issues. In either case, HR audits have become a valuable tool in helping organization identify, assess, manage, and address key HR and organizational issues.
This workshop provides an update on key HR auditing issues, discusses current and future HR audits activities, reviews HR audit techniques and methods, and provides information on how HR audits can be used to help organizations reduce risk and identify and solve problems.
