Human Resource Assessment
One of the most effective ways to determine what services may be useful in supporting the effectiveness of human resources within the organization is to engage a Human Resource Assessment. This interview-style process takes approximately two-and-a-half (2½) hours and involves collecting data and information regarding current human resource practices within the organization.
The intent of the HR Assessment is three-fold:
- Reinforces those current practices that support the strategies and objectives of the organization.
- Highlights areas of human resource practices that should be reviewed to ensure full compliance with federal and state regulations.
- Highlights recommendations that can enhance the effectiveness of human resource practices with your organization and improve the overall performance through its human capital.
The Human Resource Assessment includes, but is not limited to, reviewing the following areas as appropriate:
- Company overview - structure and make-up
- Company Marketing Material & Website – Employment-related
- Human Resource Staff (or those responsible for Human Resources)
- Human Resource Activities & Reporting
- Human Resource Goals & Initiatives
- Human Resource Budgeting & Forecasting
- Human Resource Practices, including policies & procedures
- Human Resource Information System – use of technology
- Human Resource Administration – compliance
- Recruitment Activities & Process
- Training & Development Activities
- Compensation Administration – policies & practices
- Benefits Administration – policies & practices
- Performance Management
- Human Resource Planning
When complete, a written summary of the assessment will be provided along with any identified initial recommendations and priorities for the client’s consideration. Fee schedules will also be provided with options for addressing any recommendations through HR Resources. The cost of conducting a Human Resource Assessment can vary based on organizational size and complexity. However, following the completion of any Assessment, should HR Resources be retained to provide extended on-going support services within 30-days of the completion of the assessment, the cost of the initial assessment will be credited toward any initial retainer engagement.
