Frequently asked questions

What are the responsibilities of HR?

In the context of compliance, HR holds multifaceted responsibilities. HR ensures that hiring processes adhere to equal employment opportunity laws, maintains accurate employee records to comply with data protection regulations, and implements workplace policies aligned with labor laws and industry standards. They oversee training programs to educate staff on compliance requirements and conduct audits to monitor adherence. HR also investigates complaints or violations, takes corrective actions, and collaborates with legal experts to mitigate compliance risks. Ultimately, HR plays a pivotal role in safeguarding organisational integrity and maintaining ethical standards across all operations.


How many HR staff per 100 employees?

The optimal ratio of HR staff to employees for compliance purposes varies depending on factors such as industry, organisational complexity, and regulatory requirements. However, a commonly cited benchmark suggests approximately 1 HR staff member per 100 employees. This ratio allows for effective oversight of compliance-related tasks, including policy development, training, record-keeping, and enforcement. Organisations may adjust this ratio based on their specific needs, but maintaining adequate HR support is crucial for ensuring adherence to legal obligations and mitigating compliance risks.


How can HR support Diversity and Inclusion?

In the context of compliance, HR supports diversity and inclusion by implementing equitable hiring practices, ensuring equal opportunities for all candidates. They develop training programs to promote awareness of diversity issues and foster inclusive workplace cultures. HR monitors compliance with anti-discrimination laws and investigates any allegations of bias or harassment. By incorporating diversity and inclusion metrics into performance evaluations, HR encourages accountability and promotes a diverse workforce. Additionally, HR collaborates with legal experts to ensure policies and practices align with diversity and inclusion regulations, fostering a fair and respectful work environment.
