To identify the all people risks and priorities, and inform an HR Management Plan, WCA Solutions conducts an HR/IR Audit. Depending on the nature and size of the organisation, WCA Solutions offers a few different levels of HR Audits, all aimed to provide you with a roadmap to compliance and reduce your people risks.
- A comprehensive review of current HR/IR documentation against a list of legal and relevant industry benchmarks/ best practice requirements.
- Optional on-line staff survey to obtain staff impressions of organisational requirements and HR delivery.
- Plus optional in-depth interviews with selected key stakeholders, to gain a thorough understanding of current HR/IR practices, capabilities, systems, and processes.
