More Critical HR Risk Area Questions
And here are a few more key questions to ask…
8. Are your job descriptions updated and compliant with ADA regulations?
The ADA is the main piece of legislation impacting job descriptions. Organizations with 15 or more employees are required to have a listing of essential duties, skills and job requirements for each current position. You will be asked to provide a job description if your company is audited by any governmental agency.
9. Do you have access to a trained professional who is familiar with employment laws and regulations that govern the workplace?
Many managers are not aware of the legal implications of their action and decisions. This increases the risk and exposure to company lawsuits.
10. Do you provide opportunities for employees to continually grow and learn professionally?
Studies have shown a strong correlation between employee satisfaction and retention when opportunities for employee development and training are available by the company.
11. Do you have an HR Business Plan that is flexible and able to adapt to the changing needs of your company?
Having a flexible, clearly defined, and mapped out Human Resources strategy and business planning process can significantly enhance your company’s business performance and results.
