When you have a growing business, it’s important to know that State and Federal liabilities continually grow as payroll increases.

At HR NOLA, it’s our job to stay on top of changing HR regulations so you don’t have to! Our extensive Culture & Compliance Audit checks over 300 different variables to see how your business stacks up against state and federal regulations and best practices.

Once we complete your audit, we then lay out a plan for your “HR Roadmap to Success,” which you can perform internally, or engage us to implement.  

How We Work

Our culture and compliance audit is extensive and takes between four and six weeks to complete. This time breaks down into four different phases.

Initial Assessment:

First, we review your intake of business practices and identify your business priorities. This helps to set our priorities for the rest of the audit.

Data Gathering:

Our data gathering phase is completed in person and typically takes 3-5 days. We will be on-site to research and collect information relevant to major areas of employment.

Data Analysis:

Our next step is to perform supplementary analysis of information and associated risks to see where your business needs to focus their efforts moving forward.

Audit Report and Presentation:

Finally, we present the audit summary to leadership with all compliance risks, as well as additional opportunities for improvements and best practices.

Risks will be rated as:

  • High priority (Needs immediate attention).

  • Medium priority (Needs attention in the next three to six months).

  • No noted areas of improvement needed (Full compliance).
