What is a HR Health Check?

Our HR Health Check helps organisations assess the health and maturity of your HR and identify any gaps in your current HR system.

The health assessment focuses on:

  • Key HR Policies and Procedures, Agreements and Contracts
  • Award compliance and clarification

At the completion of the Health Check you’ll receive an easy to understand, two page health summary of your organisation’s HR health.

What’s Next?

If some significant and potentially costly gaps are identified in your HR systems, you can progress to receive an HR Audit.

An Audit may cover the following:

  • Legislative Compliance (Industrial Relations, EEO)
  • Strategy
  • Benefits and Compensation
  • Training and Staff Development
  • Recruitment
  • Employee Engagement
  • Performance Management
