What is an HR review?
Our HR review service, the HR HealthCheck, is an all-in-one human resources review designed to identify areas of strategic weakness or non-compliance in your people systems and then delivering recommendations based on what we consider to be best practice for your business. If you are unsure whether or not your organisation is correctly engaging with your employees, or you believe there may be areas of non-compliance, the HR HealthCheck can identify the issues and create an action plan to improve your organisation’s HR processes.
Why is it important to review your HR policies?
It is important to review your HR policies as having outdated policies and procedures may not be appropriate in the current times. Plenty of things can change in the workplace, and society, within a few years. Look at the rise of social media or the introduction of smartphones.
Many businesses added in policies to reflect how employees should interact with these relatively new mediums. However, plenty of businesses reactively installed policies after issues arose with employees causing damages to the business.
How often should policies be reviewed?
There isn’t a standard time in which policies should be reviewed. Generally, businesses review their policies between every one and three years. Leaving it longer than this will increase the risk of having out-of-date policies. This in turn increases the risk of employment non-compliance issues too!
That being said, whilst businesses generally review policies every one to three years, if there are significant changes made to legislation or shifts within the business, it can be useful to have policies reviewed more regularly.
Through a series of 111 questions, 11 KPI’s are measured and compared against what we believe to be the best practice benchmarks for the subject area. These identify the level of risk, process maturity and the performance improvement opportunity and lead into our recommendations.
The KPI’s are:
– Employment Contracts
– Record Keeping
– Fire & Emergency
– Induction & Onboarding
– Performance Management
– Training & Development
Be able to take proactive steps, rather than ending up with your back against the wall. Take our exclusive risk assessment. It will take you no longer than 5 minutes to complete and will flag up potential risk areas. Because you don’t know what you don’t know.
