Alexandria, Virginia (prsubmissionsite) May 3, 2019 – Smart HR, a Northern Virginia HR solutions firm, recently created a 2019 HR compliance audit checklist. Performing an HR audit is an important step in ensuring that your business is operating properly.
A comprehensive HR audit touches upon every aspect of your hiring, safety, and operations procedures and analyzes them to identify areas for improvement. First, conduct a thorough review of employee files and records to ensure that the information in them is correct. This information could be important in determining compensation or getting in touch during an emergency. It’s also important to review your employee handbook and workplace policies, making updates and changes as necessary to reflect your company’s values and any changes in workplace law. Pay careful attention to your recruiting and hiring processes, compensation and promotion guidelines, complaint procedures, and health and safety measures. Clearly outlining each of these areas to your managers and employees can help create a safe, supportive, and stress-free environment for everyone working at your company.
Performing HR compliance audits on a regular basis helps make your business one at which employees enjoy working. It ensures that your policies are up to date and reflect the latest standards in business operations and shows that your company takes employees’ needs seriously, which can help you attract and retain top talent at your company, furthering its growth. It can also help you remain in compliance with any laws or regulations governing your industry, saving you from potential lawsuits that drain your finances. With an HR compliance audit, you can be sure that your business’s policies help create a welcoming workplace.
