The Process - Explained
Meet with project sponsors to establish a clear understanding of the purpose from the HR audit and any challenges that are likely to exist therein
In Step 1, Meirc auditors will meet with the organization’s senior management and the project sponsors to confirm their understanding of the project objectives and to acquire the documents required in the audit such as the organization’s strategy, structure and the set of HR policies and procedures currently in place. In said meetings, the auditors will also try to uncover any challenges or resistance which they may face in order to overcome them if required.
Analyze strategies and structures for organization and HR with emphasis on existing HR processes, job descriptions and relevant policies and procedures
In Step 2, the auditors will analyze the documents obtained in step 1 and summarize their findings in what will later constitute the first part of the audit report.
Conduct interviews with HR process owners and customers to validate the existing practices and their actual deliverables
In step 3, the auditors will conduct face to face interviews with process owners in HR, their customers and all those who directly influence such processes, either at the input or the output level. The purpose from these interviews will be to establish the maps for each critical process, with special emphasis on decision and delivery points.
Analyze the outcomes of the analysis and the interviews and determine process gaps and non-conformities
In Step 4, the auditors will analyze the outcomes of the findings in Steps 2 and 3 and draft the second part of the report which will highlight existing gaps and non-conformities, by HR section.
Prepare draft audit report (with recommendations) and share with stakeholders

Review and finalize audit report and present to project sponsor
In Step 6, Meirc will adjust the report based on the feedback received (if required) and present it in its final form to all stakeholders.
