HR Health Checks

We undertake a full health check of your business across the core areas of HR management to provide a real assessment of your business’ unique needs and can prioritise our support to best address these issues ensuring business compliance.

Not sure where to begin? HR health checks are a great starting point.

Our HR expert will come to you (or schedule a call with key people in your business) to ask all the right questions to truly understand the baseline of your HR practices. Our HR health check measures the current status of your HR and business practices and provides the basis of our HR advisory support.

The HR health check includes a thorough examination of your people management functions, assessing their capabilities and potential business exposures. We meticulously evaluate your practices against compliance and legislation requirements, ensuring you meet all necessary standards. Additionally, we provide tailored recommendations and dedicated support to mitigate risks and enhance areas needing improvement, ensuring your HR practices are both effective and compliant.

Businessary’s HR health checks provide a comprehensive assessment of your HR management, ensuring compliance.

The HR health check is a vital tool for maintaining legal compliance, improving HR functions, and aligning your HR strategies with overall business objectives, ultimately setting a solid foundation for sustainable growth.

Divided into six sections, some examples of questions we ask:

  1. HR compliance – are you meeting all the legislative requirements? Are policies and procedures up to date? Do you have a sound health, safety and well-being approach? Are HR manuals, policies and position descriptions completed and up to date?
  2. Strategy and planning – do you have clear business plans and strategic objectives? Do your people know them and understand how their role is linked to your strategy?
  3. Performance – do you have a performance management system? Clear career paths and role clarity for your people?
  4. Talent – is your employee turnover at healthy levels for your industry? Do you have a training and development approach? How do you recruit and select talent?
  5. Culture – is your team or business engaged? Do you have clear mission, vision or values that explain ‘how we do things around here’? Do you induct new starters well and consistently?
  6. Communication – how do you communicate internally? Do you have a social media approach and are you active? Do you send media releases and create effective PR events?

Businessary’s HR health check is the right decision because we offer expert, comprehensive assessments tailored to your specific business needs, ensuring a compliant strategic focus.
