Human Resource Audits (HRA)

Audits can create a tremendous amount of anxiety for any contractor.  Vickers Institute offers comprehensive audit support through each phase of the audit from receipt of a scheduling letter through closure.  Our HR auditors are experienced to provide your organization with a thorough review of the existing HR programs, policies, procedures.  The audit covers all areas of Human Resource Management (HRM) and identifies areas of compliance deficiencies, potential exposure, and productivity improvements.  Our clients receive a comprehensive analysis of all aspects of the human resource functions and can assist you in determining where you may be subject to legal challenge and how you can establish sound human resource best practices.
