Get Your HR in Order: An Audit Checklist for Small Businesses and Start-Ups
Evaluate Your Current State of HR with This Comprehensive Checklist
Small business owners and start-up founders often ask me: "How can I ensure that our HR practices are up to par? How do I know if we’re compliant with laws and regulations, or we’ve got everything from a compliance standpoint, what now?"
As someone who has spent many years working in HR, I understand how daunting it can be to navigate the complex world of human resources. Even knowing where to start can be a challenge. However, I also know just how important it is to get things right from the beginning, particularly in the early stages of a small business or start-up, where bad decisions or overlooked components can come back to haunt you down the road.
That's why I've created this HR audit checklist. It's a free resource that you can use to evaluate your current HR practices, identify areas for improvement, and implement best practices for your team. So whether you're just starting or you've been in business for years, this checklist is for you.
The HR audit checklist covers a variety of topics, including:
Recruitment and interviewing
Record keeping and documentation
Policies and procedures
Health and Safety
Compensation and benefits
By working through this checklist, you can better understand where your HR practices stand. From there, you can identify areas that require immediate attention (those with a red exclamation mark) and areas where you could make improvements for the future.
To get your hands on this HR audit checklist, download the PDF below. It's free, and you can use it as often as you like to evaluate your HR practices.
Remember, taking the time to audit your HR practices is an investment in your business. By ensuring that you comply with laws and regulations and implement best practices, you can create a more engaged and productive team and ultimately drive business success.
