HR Audit & Compliance

HR Audit & Compliance is a force multiplier for business success.

HR Audit & Compliance is a proven force multiplier for business performance. It helps you to quickly (and objectively) identify weaknesses in the HR functions, correct the outliers and achieve legal compliance. More than that, the HR audit can and does improve HR performance and push up productivity.

There are two reasons why compliance audit is crucial.

You are global but Compliance is local:

The UAE, rest of Middle East and the GCC countries are all in the same neighbourhood but have labour laws and regulatory regimes varying in different degrees. When your business spreads across these geographies, it is imperative to check whether your HR practices are compliant with the local legal mechanisms.

Secondly, HR practices might have been well planned and they might have worked well over the years, but they may not be in tune with changed circumstances. Apart from changes in legal requirements, your own rapid growth would certainly call for a close introspection.

Signals for HR audit:

HR and compliance audit is definitely needed if any of these signs are noticed.

  • Sudden and unusual increase in attrition and "good" employees leaving,
  • More employees voice grievances,
  • Any, (even if minor) compliance issues flagged by the authorities,
  • Job advertisements attract too few applications and from unsatisfactory candidates,
  • HR and other departments labour under too much of paperwork,
  • Noticeable fall in productivity in terms of sales and quality,
  • Changes in competition scenario

These are all symptoms of too many policies, contradictory practices or poor implementation. It is time to check the pulse immediately. The need is not to audit not only the HR but also how managers from other functions are practicing the HR standards. Of course, instead of acting only after the alarm bell ring, the best practice is to adopt periodical audit. 

Our consulting services for auditing HR and compliance are custom designed to address these challenges.

  • Jagdish and his team were extremely helpful. Despite not having met before, Jagdish put me in total comfort of dealing with a soft-spoken, knowledgeable and professional senior executive, which I reckon, was the best that I have ever experienced till date. From making impeccable travel and stay arrangements to coordinating my interview with my current employer, everything was so well planned and executed without any hitch. I would highly recommend Jagdish and his team for professionals who are looking to move to Dubai for better opportunities.

  • Jagdish is an extremely knowledgeable and effective HR professional who is collaborative and supportive in his work style. He was a great addition to the HR Team given the breadth and depth of his knowledge in HR Policy and Recruitment. Jagdish was also a good team leader with a positive presence and knew how to get the most out of his staff. He would be an asset to any organization. Jagdish is a professional who truly cares about the quality of the work that he produces. He has a great personality, is a good negotiator and is extremely tech-savvy.

  • We hired Jagdish's company (HCMC) to fill a few mission-critical positions for our company in the middle management. Aside from exploring candidates ourselves, we felt that a thorough professional like Jagdish can help us identify the right candidate/s for the company. We were not let down! Jagdish and his team handled our requirements very well and ensured that we hired really competent candidates for our company.

  • My professional association with Jagdish started in 2000, when I was with Emirates Airlines (IT Mercator) Division. He helped us to recruit a number of people. What struck me was his network amongst professionals in the UAE and multi domain knowledge, which proved to be a handy expertise in Executive search.

  • I have known Jagdish since 1999 while he was with IT People. Jagdish frankly was a discovery as he proved greater than what he appeared to be or spoke about. Though those days he did not appear to be an out spoken guy, he proved his capabilities beyond the expectations of the team and the management. I still remember him as a sober chap, highly flexible, ready to sacrifice anything and everything to attain the task before him - he never complains about extended work times, late nights or setbacks due to client delays - He tuned with his team managers displaying high loyalty, dedication and cooperation as if he was silently saying in unsaid words that "I will run with you till we reach the destination together no matter what slows us down or no matter how high are the mountains that we need to climb till we reach there. “

    When I met him recently, I have realised that he has progressed much ahead in his career both in maturity and experience in the HR domain and I was extremely happy to understand his progress and success. I truly and sincerely wish Jagdish all the best in his new HR venture and I am positive that he is one of the few who will stand strong to fulfil his commitments and meet the needs of his clients to their utmost satisfaction. My advice to Jagdish is “To be yourself and to be original because there are only a few who can do as best as you without needing a put up personality”.
