Audit & Compliance

Managing the needs of your nonprofit’s workforce while navigating an increasingly complex world of regulations, requirements and HR responsibilities can be difficult.

Whether you need to audit your HR practices to ensure compliance with federal, state and local laws, or want to go deeper and audit the effectiveness of your HR function, Nonprofit HR’s experts are ready to turn your Audit & Compliance challenges into opportunities.

HR Functional Assessment

Nonprofit HR’s Functional Assessments aim to answer one crucial question: is your human resources function contributing to the achievement of your organization’s strategic goals and objectives? Our team begins each Functional Assessment with an in-depth exploration of your organization’s human resources needs through engagement with leadership, HR staff and other team members, as well as a study of key documents such as strategic plans, operational plans and annual reports.

Then, armed with a firm understanding of your organization’s goals and objectives, we produce a gap analysis that identifies areas in which current HR practices, organizational structures and staff resources may be misaligned with your organization’s strategic plan. Finally, our consultants make and execute recommendations for change, from hiring new staff to restructuring existing departments to assessing benefits programs to implementing and upgrading HR technology.

Nonprofit HR’s clients commonly report significant, measurable improvements in employee performance, engagement, retention and attitudes toward HR following a HR Functional Assessment.

HR Compliance Audit

An HR Compliance Audit is a proprietary diagnostic methodology Nonprofit HR uses to help our clients assess their compliance with local, state and federal laws and with human resources best practices. A proactive audit can mitigate the risk of significant legal and financial penalties nonprofits frequently face due to failure to comply with a complex array of employment laws and other regulations.

Featured Insight: HR 101: Compliance Audit

Do you lie awake at night thinking about questions such as:

  • Is my organization in compliance with federal and state guidelines requiring that certain information be posted in view of all employees and applicants?
  • Are my organization’s jobs properly classified as exempt and non-exempt? Would these classifications pass a Department of Labor audit?
  • Why does my organization have difficulty attracting and retaining qualified employees?

If so, it may be time for your organization to consider conducting an HR audit.
