This transcript was created using an automated transcription service and may contain errors.
Usually an assessment will include interviews with each person responsible for HR duties, a review of internal policies and procedures, an audit of employee files, and an overview of relevant documents such as an employee manual and performance management forms.
A formal assessment should identify where an HR department is being successful and where improvements can be made. Areas typically reviewed include compliance and administration, compensation and benefits, training and development, talent acquisition, performance management, analytics, staffing, and employee relations.
An assessment also includes which items are top priority to address and targeted timelines to complete action on the priorities established.
