Company Policies Do you have an up-to-date em-

ager or HR department, a good place to start is with an HR audit. To do this, start by reviewing the information above and identifying any gaps. Based on your expertise, time and budget, de- termine your priorities and which as- pects you can tackle with your team. You may want to consider outsourcing this review and creation of the tools. Be sure that your managers are

trained on the use and delivery of the tools. And of course set a timeline to en- sure that this project doesn’t get stuck on a back burner. FBC
