HR Audit is a process of examining policies, procedures, documentation, systems and practices with respect to an organization’s HR functions. The purpose of the HR audit is to reveal the strengths and weakness in the HR system and any issues needing resolution. The HR audit works best when the focus is on analyzing and improving the HR function in the organization.
The HR audit itself is a diagnostic tool and a prescriptive instrument. It will help the organization to identify what it is missing or need to improve and provide recommendations. It is most useful to evolve its HR functions to a level where it’s full potential to support the organization’s mission and objectives can be realized.
