Course overview:

HR Audit has gained wide acceptance due to increased focus on the HR to play a more strategic role in the organization.  

Similar to the Finance audit, the HR function also requires regular audit to determine if HR policies, procedures and practices are adequate, legal and effective to support the strategic goals of the organization. The HR function will get into situations that are potential areas of risk from- termination procedures, compensation and benefits, hiring process, record keeping to managers’ non-compliance with the laid down HR procedures, policies and the best practices.  

HR Audit involves intense and objective look at the HR policies, procedures and practices to conduct a comprehensive review of the company’s current HR function state. The results obtained from this review can help identify where gaps exist and remediate these gaps in an effort to minimize regulatory violations and achieve a world-class competitiveness in key HR practice areas. Therefore, HR Audit is a valuable risk mitigation tool in assessing the effectiveness of HR function within the organization.

End of the workshop


While both In-House and Online training can present with cost-effectiveness and time-efficacy, there are some very specific differences between in-house courses and those based online.
The demand for additional courses by individuals or groups of people is increasing. Still, it depends entirely on the preferences of a person what type of training he or she wants to receive. Online courses and in-house training carry some similarities but they are considered to exhibit some very pivotal differences too. Despite that, both types of learning can be really beneficial for attendees.
