How HR Impacts Your Bottom Line.

Studies have shown that a highly effective HR function can contribute 10% to the bottom line of an organization. A first step in determining HR effectiveness is to conduct a HR audit. A HR audit should be assessing the following:

  • Are we in compliance?
  • How effective and efficient is our HR branding, recruitment and selection in obtaining talent?
  • Do our HR programs and procedures support the organization and have a positive impact on employee relations and retention?
  • Do our training and development programs focus on what the organization needs to improve organizational effectiveness?
  • How do we evaluate the impact of our training and development programs?
  • Does HR have a strategic plan? If so, how is it aligned with the organization’s strategic plan?
  • How do you measure HR’s effectiveness?

HR Design Solutions is able to help organizations conduct an HR audit which in turn provides bottom line results.
