DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "HR Audits: Ensuring Compliance & Improving Competitiveness and Productivity - Webinar" webinar to their offering.
Human resources play a critical and growing role in most organizations. Increasingly, human resources determine the success of organizations. And for some organizations, human resources are a critical factor in their organizations' survival.
These factors create a growing demand for a report on how well this critical organizational asset is being managed and provide the need for HR audits. As noted, in the global economy, human resources have become for many organizations the single most important determinant of competitiveness, productivity, sustainability, and profitability. Increasingly, organizations' human resources are the source of innovation and a driver of business success.
Additionally, the recent confluence of economic, political, and social factors have resulted in increased statutory and regulatory requirements, a call for greater transparency, and increased internal and external audit activity.
Finally, governmental agencies have become more active and have committed more resources in conducting employer assessments. Governmental agencies now consider organizations self assessments and New HR Auditing Techniques as best practices and critical aspect of preventing and managing workplace violations.
Over the last 5 years there has been a significant change in the HR auditing process, the value derived from HR auditing, and the HR audit tools used. HR audits have evolved from a simple checklist of do's and don'ts or periodic affirmative action plans to a comprehensive, sustainable process that: 1) is an integral part of the organization's internal controls, due diligence, and risk management; 2) is a fundamental activity of strategic management; and 3) uses sophisticated auditing products and consulting services. Increasingly, HR audits are conducted of HR rather than by HR. This webinar discusses the changes in HR audits, discusses the external and internal forces affecting the process and use of HR audits, and provides information about the leading HR auditing process.
This session discusses the increasing recognition by organizations that their human capital is a source of innovation and a driver of business success, and to be effective in the global economy, their HR audits must be diagnostic, predictive, and action-oriented.
The session also discusses role HR audits play in an increasingly complex and multi-dimensional world.
This while ensuring compliance is still a basic goal of HR audits, other objectives include:
- Ensuring the alignment of HR management and employment practices with the organization's business objectives.
- Assessing the outcomes of the organization's employment processes, policies, practices, and outcomes.
- Developing the right human capital measurements and HR metrics to allow the organization to calculate and measure the value added by human resources, to determine the ROI and the return on the human capital asset, to measure the outcomes of employment policies and practices and the achievement of EEO and diversity goals, and to benchmark best practices.
- Ensuring required due diligence, including: uncovering hidden liabilities and assets, identifying vulnerabilities to be corrected, and identifying opportunities to be attacked.
- Developing HR auditing procedures that become an ongoing and sustainable element of the organization's internal controls.
- Developing HR auditing procedures that become an ongoing and sustainable element of the organization's risk management program.
