What Is An Audit?
A brief, general audit of your employment screening process can help identify how you can save time and money today.
We hear the word ‘audit’ and automatically think taxes. “Uh-oh, something’s wrong!” But this isn’t always the case. Even the most well-structured business can have processes that are outdated or ineffective. That’s where we come in. Our experts will take a look at your current employment screening process to help identify areas that could be improved or in some cases, that may be missing from your process entirely.
We will be happy to recommend solutions or best practices of the industry, after all we are the experts, that will help your team streamline your hiring process to fit your specific your needs, and of course, look at the best ways to save you time and money.
Our Audit Process
When we take a look at your background check process, we’re not doing a deep-dive to look at financial records, or specific applicant records. We’ll take a look at what you’re doing now, why you’re doing it, and how it benefits or hurts your hiring process.
Our audits are hassle-free, taking an unintrusive look at your hiring process and identifying any potential areas that may need improvement. Despite being so crucial to workplace safety, employment screening audits are one of the most overlooked processes, especially in small businesses, that can help your company prevent risk. This is to say that most HR departments get caught in the interview and applicant selection process, over looking the ways in which a solid and up to date candidate screening process can benefit their company.
Our experts can help you streamline your employment screening process, ensure you are compliant with state laws and regulations, and save you man hours and bottom line dollars that will add up to thousands annually, with customizable packages tailored to your specific needs.
But there are steps you can take today to begin the process:
What You Can Do Today
Here are just a few of the steps you can take to audit your own process and identify any weaknesses or areas that need improvement:
- According to Forbes, the number one thing you should do is define your goals: Start by identifying the key objectives of your hiring process. Are you looking to hire top talent? Reduce hiring costs? Improve diversity? Understanding your goals will help you evaluate the effectiveness of your current process and identify areas that need improvement.
- Analyze your data: Collect data on key metrics, such as time-to-hire, candidate experience, and quality of hires. Use this data to identify any inefficiencies, as well as any areas where you’re already succeeding.
- Feedback: Talk to your hiring team, as well as candidates who have gone through your hiring process, to get their feedback on what worked well and what could be improved. Consider conducting surveys or focus groups.
- Evaluate your tools: Evaluate the tools and technologies you’re using to support your hiring process, such as applicant tracking systems and interview software. Are they meeting your needs, or are there better, more affordable options available?
- Review your policies: Review your policies and procedures to ensure they align with best practices and, more importantly, legal requirements. Are you taking steps to reduce bias and promote diversity and inclusion?
- Develop an action plan: Based on your analysis, develop an action plan. Prioritize the changes that will have the biggest impact on your goals, and establish a timeline for implementing them.
By regularly auditing your hiring process, you can ensure that you’re attracting and hiring the right employees for your organization, while also improving efficiency and reducing costs. Think of it as an investment that will pay off in the long run.
