HR Audit

HR Audit

HR has a unique role to play: It can help leaders adapt to new models of work and careers, and encourage changes in trends, culture change, focus and policy.

How we can help

Research has shown that sound human resource (HR) practices, in particular performance management and career management, are key to a company achieving its objectives whilst increasing employees’ level of commitment.So, if you are re-assessing the way your company does business we can help you provide a competitive advantage by measuring and managing your human capital.

Senior Management Interviews

The purpose of such interviews is to ask questions on the role of HR and key business issues facing the organisation. The data collected from the interviews will form the basis of the focus group discussions and the content of the organisation-wide HR questionnaire.

HR Review-Focus Groups

Core Measures will conduct 1-2 focus group sessions with approx 16 staff in each representative of the organisations’ structure and levels. The purpose of these sessions will be to identify how satisfied or dissatisfied employees are with the role of HR and the organisation’s HR systems. Incumbents selected should meet the following criteria: are successful in their job, have a good knowledge of the organisation and are able to articulate concisely. The data collected will be helpful in designing an HR questionnaire.
