An industry-leading crane manufacturer experienced significant growth over three generations and sought a professional HR partner to ensure legal compliance of their employment practices. The organization wanted to determine what measures to take to better manage HR procedures, and ensure current practices were legal and fairly and consistently implemented across the company. To assess their current state of HR, an on-site HR audit was required by the manufacturer in multiple sites and states.
CCI employs a three-phased approach to the HR audit process – document review and staff interviews, identifying gaps, and prioritizing corrective action. Prior to coming on site, CCI reviewed a collection of HR documents. HR consultants spent one day at every location reviewing documentation and current processes. Through interviews conducted with key staff members, document reviews, and on-site visits, HR consultants were able to define the client’s current state, identify HR and legal requirements for compliance, and deliver future state recommendations in order of priority.
While the organization had been making strides to ensure legal compliance, there was opportunity for improvement in many areas including the pre-employment and application process, personnel files, hiring and onboarding practices, and job descriptions. At the conclusion of the audit, a full audit report was delivered and reviewed with Senior Management. CCI was hired for on-site HR support two-days a week to improve the HR practices highlighted in the audit and to partner with Senior Management and staff on day-to-day HR needs.
