The importance of a HR audit

The importance of a HR audit

Running a successful business requires more than just hard work and dedication; it also means staying up to date with ever-changing employment law legislation. Keeping up with the latest laws and regulations can be challenging, but failure to comply can have serious consequences for your business. That's where an HR audit comes in.

An HR audit is an objective review of your business's HR practices, policies and procedures. This review helps identify areas of non-compliance and provides recommendations for improvement. Conducting an annual HR audit can ensure that your business complies with current laws and regulations.

Stallard Kane's HR Audit consists of reviewing and updating your current terms and conditions of employment, a full review of employee lifecycle documentation, an analysis of sickness and absence procedures, and a review of disciplinary, capability, and grievance policies. They will also review any recent changes in legislation and employment law decisions.

After conducting an HR Audit, Stallard Kane provides a comprehensive report highlighting areas of non-compliance using a red, amber and green traffic light system. This allows you to prioritise which areas need to be addressed first. They will also provide updated employment contracts, an HR manual, and a bespoke Employee Handbook.

Stallard Kane’s HR Advisors are experts in employment law and will work with you to create a framework for your business that is structured to your environment and policies. They will provide you with the support and guidance necessary to cover any issues and ensure that your business remains compliant.

In conclusion, an HR audit is essential for any business to stay up to date with employment law legislation and to protect both the business and its employees. Stallard Kane offers expert advice and guidance to ensure your business remains compliant.
