HR audit

During an HR audit, we conduct a comprehensive review to assess how well your company complies with Swedish labor law and work environment, as well as established labor market practices. We also map out strategic HR focus areas within People & Culture, to ensure that your company’s HR strategies are in line with your business objectives.

Why every company needs an HR audit

An HR audit can be likened to a comprehensive health check for your company. Instead of measuring physical health parameters, we review your HR policies and procedures. This is to ensure that your HR work supports your company’s goals and is in line with constantly evolving laws and regulations.

Key benefits of conducting an HR audit

Improving compliance with labor law aspects

Navigating Swedish labor law can be complex. An HR audit helps ensure that your company’s processes are compliant with all relevant laws and regulations, and reduces the risk of knowledge gaps.

Cost savings

Through an HR audit, your company can realize significant savings by preventing costly legal disputes. A thorough review can reveal critical areas where your compliance with employment law needs to be strengthened, reducing the risk of costly litigation. Furthermore, an HR audit can identify inefficient processes such as recruitment. By streamlining these, you can not only reduce unnecessary expenses, but also speed up the time it takes to fill key positions, which can directly contribute to your company’s financial health.

Increased employee satisfaction

We have also seen that an HR audit can lead to increased employee engagement and satisfaction. When employees see that the company is actively working to create a fair and good work environment, as well as continuously striving to improve HR processes, they often feel valued and respected. This attention to fairness and development can contribute to a stronger company culture, which in turn leads to better employee satisfaction.

How we conduct an HR audit

STEP 1

Data collection and analysis

The core of an HR audit is to collect and analyze data. We start by collecting the necessary data from all existing HR operational processes, procedures, templates and more.

STEP 2

Qualitative interviews

We conduct qualitative interviews with key people within the company, aiming to understand where you are heading and what possible obstacles and opportunities exist for continued successful growth. In addition, we collect any HR data – if available.

STEP 3

Results are presented

Once we have completed the analysis, we present the results of the HR audit. The HR audit includes both the current state of the “HR base” as well as recommended relevant HR strategic focus areas and actions to meet your strategic direction and business.
