Human Resources Audit Tools
Conducting human resource audits can help your organization avoid legal and regulatory liability based on your HR policies and procedures. Tools like HeyBuddy can help you assess which policies are functioning well and find areas that need improvement. HeyBuddy is a cloud-based mobile application that can revolutionize the way you do business. All of your employee data in your HRIS system is made securely accessible within seconds on any mobile device. Instant accessibility for the employees who need the information is an invaluable asset.
Access to Critical Data
HR audits help businesses understand whether their HR practices help, hamper or have little impact on the organization’s goals. The audit can also provide a roadmap for necessary changes. With HeyBuddy, managers have the ability to instantly access the information they need, anywhere and anytime. Imagine yourself meeting with an executive to discuss hiring, performance management, discipline, termination policies, and other policies and procedures… but the personal data you need to hold an informed meeting is not easily accessible. The HeyBuddy app allows you to have direct, fast access to employee details, KPIs, and relevant reports at your fingertips that can help you move the discussion from generalities to specifics and help drive fact-based decisions on the spot. In an HR audit, you can use KPIs and other data to analyze an employee’s past performance and measure productivity and competency levels. A review of a customer service rep, for example, might include the number of calls handled per day and the rate of positive or negative feedback. You can assess your reward system, and determine whether the KPIs you’ve designed are aligned with the organization’s vision.
Types of HR Audits
There are different types of HR audits, and each one is designed to accomplish a specific objective. Common types of audits include:
- Compliance: Helps determine how well your organization is complying with current federal, state, and local laws and regulations.
- Strategic: Helps you evaluate the strengths and weaknesses of your systems and processes and determine whether they align with the company’s strategic plan.
- Function-specific: Focuses on a specific area of your HR operation, such as recruitment, payroll, workplace safety, records retention, training and development, employee relations, and compensation and benefits.
- Best practices: Helps you compare your organization’s practices with similar companies that may have better HR practices and implement them.
Employee Satisfaction Surveys
As part of an HR audit, you may want to learn how your employees feel about the adequacy of their training programs and their work environments. Utilize HeyBuddy to create a survey that employees can respond to from wherever they are located via their mobile devices at any time of day or night to convey whether or not you are meeting their needs. Listening to your employees gives you an opportunity to adjust outdated policies and procedures that may be causing an excessive turnover. Use human resources audit tools like HeyBuddy to identify gaps in your HR practices and review whether your organization’s policies and procedures are adequate, legal and effective.
