Dear Raghavendra,

The audit is defined as "A methodical examination or review of a condition or situation". When an audit of the HR department is conducted, it is conducted on two counts. One is by the regular auditor of the Audit department. Generally, they check the attendance records, whether properly leave records are maintained or not, Is there any excess disbursement of salary? etc. However, the above audit is a basic one. It does not take into account the functional aspects of HR.

I provide consulting services on HR Audits. For this, I have divided the audit into three parts. These are as below:

a) Functions of the Personnel Department

b) Functions of the HR Department

c) Advance functions of the HR Department

This step-by-step approach helps us stabilise the HR function. I have seen in many companies that although the department is called "HR Department", it does not fulfil the requirements of the Personnel Department. HR Department has evolved from Personnel Department. However, that does not mean that a few activities of the personnel department are irrelevant today.

The second benefit of trifurcation of the HR Audit is not to get entangled in the HR jargon. Occasionally HR has a propensity to give prominence to the jargon rather than brass tacks of their function. I try avoiding this.
