The new year offers a pivotal chance for businesses to evaluate their Human Resources (HR) strategy through a comprehensive HR audit. As Srinivas and Sirisetti (2023) posit in their 2022 Journal of Positive School Psychology article The Impact of Human Resources Audit Practices in Indian Smes: Novel Approach, "regular human resource audits make it possible to detect significant trends before they generate crises" (p. 7502). Audits align strategy, ensuring sustainable growth, satisfaction, and success while building an equitable culture. Here, we explore audits, their business benefits, how to conduct one, and how AllProfit HR can strategically transform your organization.
