Human resource audits assist in identifying whether a HR departmentâ€™s specific practice areas or processes are adequate, legal and effective. The results obtained from this review can help identify gaps in HR practices, and HR can subsequently prioritize these gaps in an effort to minimize lawsuits or regulatory violations, as well as achieve and maintain world-class competitiveness in key HR practice areas.
