The recruitment and selection process is a key HR / people management process where employers can inadvertently find themselves not complying with equality legislation. This could be costly to the business and result in employment and equality tribunal claims.
Our recruitment and selection audit will review and analyse your current recruitment and selection practices and documentation, including a sample review of existing template job descriptions, person specifications, recent job advertisements, interview assessment documentation, recruitment tracking, the employment offer process and pre-employment checks completed.
We will provide a summary report with key recommendations to support enhancing your recruitment and selection framework. Thereafter, we can support in creating and implementing improved processes and documentation and deliver training to those involved in the recruitment and selection process to enhance their knowledge and competence.
Our personnel file audits will review that key HR documentation is being held on employees’ personnel files including signed offer letters, signed employment contracts, evidence of right to work checks, and pre-employment checks.

Option 1: Review and analysis of a sample of 6 personnel files (manual or electronic), summary report of documentation held and recommendations.
Option 2: Review and analysis of all personnel files (manual or electronic), summary report of documentation held and recommendations.
