Human Resources Audits
What Is an HR Audit?
A proper HR audit evaluates every aspect of your company’s HR operations, from hiring practices and compensation to compliance and training. These tools should be tailored to each organization’s unique operational structure, delivering specialized expertise for far less than the investment of drafting them from scratch.
What Is an HR Compliance Audit?
An HR compliance audit evaluates how closely your business adheres to federal, state, and local regulations. An organizational HR audit’s primary purpose is to define potential risks internally and find solutions to in-house problems. But an HR compliance audit highlights what you are doing right and what you are doing wrong in regards to legal regulations, helping you to avoid costly penalties.
What do HR Audits Look For?
An organizational HR audit measures the effectiveness and efficiency of your company’s HR practices. An effective organizational HR audit can identify gaps in human resources practices, allowing management to address key issues internally to stay competitive. An HR compliance audit, however, only looks at how well your organization complies with legal regulations on the federal, state, and local level.
How do I Prepare For an HR Audit?
Get your company files in order before an HR audit commences. An HR audit reviews your company’s hiring, compensation, compliance, and training practices — so, the best way to prepare for that is to organize all of the files regarding those subjects. You shouldn’t have to rush to prepare documents in the days leading up to the audit. You should be proactive by storing and labeling all company files in a way that key documents can be easily found when needed. A great way to be proactive is to go paperless.
Wherever you are located (Bucks County, Mercer County, Philadelphia, Ewing, Mercer County, South Jersey, Manhattan, New York City, Brooklyn, etc.), we can help streamline your HR operations.
We will review your benefits and compensation programs and make recommendations to fit your culture and budget.
Employee Surveys / Exit Interviews
How individuals feel about their jobs, their colleagues, their supervisors, the overall environment — all these factors influence their personal productivity and the performance of the larger organization. Without a formal process to learn about personnel attitudes, companies typically rely upon supervisors’ observations or employees’ willingness to volunteer information. However, managerial instinct rarely provides the hard data required to drive decisions, and people often don’t feel comfortable sharing candid feedback with supervisors or HR personnel. We can create and administer employee surveys to identify potential areas for improvement. Then we develop recommendations to help your organization move forward as a unified team.
Our consultants also conduct objective exit interviews with departing employees. These discussions often reveal important turnover causes and retention solutions, while improving relations with departing individuals—especially when paired with our career outplacement coaching.

Job Descriptions & Recruiting Support
Job descriptions play a critical role in effective recruitment and management. Each description needs to explain clearly the responsibilities and tasks required by the job, as well as the criteria for superior performance—all while meeting legal compliance. Our consultants can review or rewrite existing job descriptions, or develop new ones.
In addition, we provide recruiting support —writing and placing ads, reviewing resumes, screening candidates, conducting interviews, and recommending selections—while internal resources focus on operations and revenue generation.

Company Policies & Documentation
Times change, and so should company policies. Even for organizations with only a handful of employees, inadequate or inconsistent policies can lead to problems with employees—and possible legal exposure. An employee manual can improve orientation and training, while decreasing potential liability.
