With only two and a half months left in the year, some of us are pouring over our calendars trying to find a convenient time to get our annual physicals in. It’s not the kind of thing we look forward to with gleeful anticipation, but each passing year reminds us that we are not invincible, and our regular medical check-ups can allow us to discover and resolve health issues before they become critical.
A Human Resource Assessment works in much the same way. It helps business leaders identify and avoid compliance risks and uncovers opportunities to develop more efficient and effective HR policies and processes. The results of an HR assessment can also shine a spotlight on what the HR function has been getting right, thereby reaffirming and validating the work of HR practitioners.
Today’s business leaders are constantly walking the tightrope of balancing resources and business outcomes. As such, keeping a pulse on HR processes can become secondary to the more pressing issues of managing cash flow, production/operations, customer care, and business expansion. Unfortunately, it is in the midst of this whirlwind of business activity that HR issues often slip through the cracks, and your organization becomes exposed.
Further, the COVID-19 pandemic has substantially changed the way we work. Workplace trends such as virtual recruiting and onboarding, teleworking, tapping into national/global talent pools, digitization, upskilling, and contingent worker expansion that were initially seen as temporary adaptations have now become a standard part of how businesses operate. Thus, it is even more urgent for business leaders to assess their HR infrastructure to determine how well it can support these operational shifts.
