As with all organizations, there are internal and external changes that affect organizational practices. One major external change that affects all aspects of operations is the laws and regulations that govern policies, procedures, documentation and systems. All organizations are required to keep track of changes in current federal and state laws that affect their practices for optimal implementation. However, even with a dedicated human resources manager or team, some aspects of the law are often overlooked. Another challenge to effectuating good human resource practices and ensuring compliance is due to personal biases and/or blind spots an organization’s HR team may have. These audits are HR essentials and most successful when performed within your organization by a discreet and discerning outside HR consultant who is free of a personal stake in the outcome of the audit.
