The HR Compliance Role
Manage, Assess and Execute on Compliance
Human resources (HR) compliance is an essential area for organisations to properly assess and understand their performance. It is crucial to be successful in understanding your obligations based on today’s legal environment, but achieving and maintaining compliance can be an elusive goal. It is hard to maintain the right level of awareness, recognise the challenges and develop effective processes to meet them.
Conducting Scheduled HR Compliance Audits
Unfortunately, many HR functions are typically understaffed and overworked. Conducting scheduled HR compliance audits should be a part of an organisation’s overall strategy to avoid any legal liabilities. However, without the right tools and processes in place, non-compliance can and has been the basis for significant financial and reputational risk.
HR compliance should be treated as a process
The goal for compliance is clear, however the process needs structure and rigour to effectively assess organisational levels of compliance in context to the multitude of laws and regulations governing the employment relationship and employee life cycle.
The Employee Metrics 9-Step process is designed to help the HR function take a large step towards its goal of achieving and maintaining HR compliance for the overall organisation.
Step 1 Assess: Evaluate organisational compliance across the multitude of laws and regulations governing the employment relationship and the action required to manage and mitigate risk.
