You’ve decided that it’s time… you need to take the important step of auditing functions within your HR department. So what now? It takes time, discipline, and the objective human resources to conduct a thorough audit and it starts with understanding your objectives. Do you want to do a full-audit of all HR functions or be more specific? No matter what the extend of your audit is, reviewing the current state is a necessary first step.
