"An HR management performance audit is future orientated and can identify areas for organisational improvement”.
“HR Auditing crosses the boundaries between HR management and auditing… it can be a suitable method for evaluating the contribution of HR activities to organisational objectives assessed on the basis of value for money.”
Abstract from Dissertation; Chris Andrews: Bond University
The SABPP is a professional body for HR practitioners which is over 30 years old and has carried the mandate to set HR standards in order to professionalise the practice of HRM and raise the standard of work in HR functions.
With the active support of the profession in South Africa, the SABPP has been able to develop and launch a comprehensive HR Management Standard, with associated assessment and scoring tools to enable audits to be carried out. This is a global first and is attracting a lot of attention from all over the world including developed nations such as the US and UK and developing nations such as our African neighbours. The HRM Standard is complemented by a comprehensive HR Competency Model.
We can now say with confidence what an organisation should be doing in terms of its HR function; we have an integrated system model to guide us; and we can measure the competence of HR practitioners.
