Human Resource Audits and Assessments

Human Resources Services, Inc. is prepared to assist you with all your Human Resource Audit needs to ensure that your organization is in compliance with local, state, and federal laws, and to also ensure that the best practices in human resource management are being used.  An HR Audit is a comprehensive and in-depth analysis of strengths and weaknesses and shows where improvements may be needed.  Conducting an HR Audit involves a review of all your HR operations and systems, as well as practices, policies, and procedures, and may include benchmarking against organizations of similar size and/or industry.  Human Resources Services, Inc. can offer your community a comprehensive package of services to help ensure that your HR system, associated policies, practices and approach are contemporary and maintained in compliance with all local, state and federal regulations.  We also provide online services to assist you with maintaining critical HR documents. 

These HR Audits are important because laws and requirements regularly change and it is a good "check-up" for HR.

Over the years HRS has conducted scores of HR Audits for communities as small as Pepperell, MA; mid-sized communities such as Yarmouth, Falmouth, and Foxborough, MA; and for cities as large as Beverly and Springfield, MA.
