HR Assessment


What is it?

The HR Assessment involves a review of your organization's current policies and practices to identify gaps and design the most effective service strategy for the business. The HR Assessment is a crucial first step that River Run HR takes when engagement begins between our firm and your company. The purpose of the assessment is to identify areas of strength and weakness and where improvements may be needed. The information gathered from the audit helps determine whether current HR processes comply with State and Federal regulations and support business goals.

The Recommendations

The HR Assessment includes a comprehensive discussion and review of current practices, policies, and procedures, and often includes benchmarking against organizations of similar size and industry. After the assessment, River Run HR will provide you with a summary of findings and recommendations for next steps. Specific areas examined in the audit include:

  • Compliance

    • Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO)

    • Age Discrimination in Employment (ADEA)

    • Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA)

    • Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA)

  • Record-keeping (personnel files, I-9s, applications, etc.)

  • Compensation/pay equity

  • Employee relations

  • Performance appraisal systems

  • Policies and procedures/employee handbook

  • Terminations

  • Health, safety and security (OSHA compliance, Drug-Free Workplace, Workplace Violence)

The Result

Legislation affecting all aspects of Human Resources is constantly evolving and the legal ramifications of noncompliance impact your HR department, organization, and employees.  At a minimum, the results of this assessment help determine what HR initiatives need to be put in place, how these changes will impact the organization’s bottom line, and how to prioritize problem areas in terms of significance.
