About the course

It is vitally important for HR to keep pace with the demands of dynamic business environments and legal frameworks. Unfortunately many HR functions have evolved without being fully aware of these demands, and are either totally reactive or are driven by their specialist outlook, not taking the imperative to support the organization its business and its strategies into consideration. The HR audit is used to highlight areas of weakness, areas that can be improved and even areas where there are no policies or procedures.

Employment law is also an ever-changing field and, to avoid costly litigation, your policies, procedures and processes must reflect the law. The HR audit is an essential preventative strategy to ensure you remain legally compliant.
