Wondering about your company’s HR compliance and effectiveness?


An HR audit involves an objective look at the company’s HR policies, practices, procedures and strategies to protect the company, establish best practices and identify opportunities for improvement.  An objective review of the company’s “current state” can help you evaluate whether specific practice areas are adequate, legal and/or effective. The results can provide decision-makers with the information necessary to decide what areas need improvement.


The Barbelo Group's HR Audit identifies the state of your organization’s compliance programs while clearly identifying areas of opportunity that will make the greatest impact to the success of your organization. Business leaders will gain a clear picture of:


Gaps in regulatory compliance


  • Areas where risk can be further mitigated
  • Opportunities for improving employee retention and productivity
  • Ideas to better position your organization as an “employer of choice”


What does an HR Audit entail?


Although our HR Audits are comprehensive, we prioritize minimizing the impact to your daily routine.  We start by reviewing (off-site) employment-related documents that are easily provided electronically, and then we come to your location for the on-site portion of the HR Audit, which typically takes 1.5 – 2 days. Following our data gathering activities, Our HR team completes and presents to your team a comprehensive report of our findings and recommendations.


  • Pre-Audit Preparation
    • Prior to an on-site visit, initial company information will be gathered for review ahead of the on-site review or for access during the on-site audit process. The information needed is outlined in a list and includes items such as HR manuals, employee handbooks, benefits descriptions, copies of policies, and other key information.
  • On-Site HR Review
    • The audit process includes a review of employment documents and completion of a comprehensive checklist addressing areas of HR compliance and best practice activities.  We are committed not only to making this an efficient process, but to gathering the right information and doing so in a confidential and professional partnership with your team. Key areas include topics of:


      • People Placement
      • On-boarding
      • Compensation
      • Employee Performance
      • Employee Engagement
      • Wellness
      • Talent Management
      • Employee Separation
      • Health & Leave Benefits


  • Leader Interviews
    • To gain further insight into your organization’s processes, people practices, and priorities, we take time to have a brief, yet effective conversation with your leaders—especially those who are responsible for managing employees or are influencing the performance and direction of the organization.  We find this step provides invaluable context to uncovering organizational risks and opportunities.
  • HR Audit Findings & Recommendations Report
    • Following audit activities, the Barbelo Group HR team compiles and presents the Findings & Recommendations report.  This report clearly identifies the state of compliance and best practices in the 18 categories of the HR Audit.  Findings and recommendations are provided in a manner that is clearly understood and actionable.  Priorities are suggested based on each category’s ability to contribute to increased value and/or risk mitigation at your organization.
