Description

A Great 8 of 2014!

Business units everywhere are under the gun to prove their effectiveness and strategic value especially human resources departments. Now they can accurately gauge how well they're doing with this new edition of Auditing Your Human Resources Department. This comprehensive guide walks readers through an in-depth self-assessment process rigorous, but far less costly and intimidating than an outside audit.

The proven process entails gathering key information, scoring answers, analyzing data, and fixing problem spots while scrutinizing 11 HR functions, including:

  • Department organization and employees
  • Recruitment and selection
  • Compensation
  • Benefits
  • Education, training, and development
  • Diversity and EOE

Hundreds of pages of questionnaires, checklists, and forms make the process as simple and painless as possible. Completely revised to include information on strategic planning and HR, important developments in technology, and new federal workplace laws, the second edition supplies the tools to pinpoint strengths, improve weaknesses and turn HR into an essential business asset.

CD-ROM includes worksheets, assessments, Action-Planning documents, and more.

Great book but... Review by Sparky
Overall rating
Just a note, it says here if you're a non-member you pay $70. On Amazon it's $49 for everyone in hardcover, and $39 for Kindle. Non-members should go to Amazon to purchase this book. Members should, too.

SHRMStore response: The SHRMStore staff works hard to identify the books and resources important to HR. We try to be as competitively priced with Amazon as possible. In many cases we compete closely, as is the case with the member price of this book. Also, when you purchase your books from the SHRMStore, your purchase supports SHRM's mission to support and advance the HR profession.

We hope you'll continue to look to the SHRMStore for the latest books, DVDs, software, and online resources for HR. And we hope you'll shop with us to help support our shared HR mission. (Posted on 5/12/12)
