Every project that your team takes on has a definable, quantifiable, and concrete end goal (or goals). Achieving those end goals is of primary importance to any project. But it’s equally important to focus on the process that will be undertaken to reach any given end goal. In other words, the likelihood of completing a project in a satisfactory and timely manner is only as strong as the processes upon which it’s based.
One of the most important components of any process – and therefore, any project – is compliance. Most working professionals today have undoubtedly heard of compliance, but it’s a term that isn’t nearly as common or understood as it should be. Therefore, the goal of this article will be to shed some light on compliance, and the primary role that it should play in each of your team’s projects.
What is Compliance?
Compliance, simply put, is the process of ensuring that every specific aspect of a project and HR policy adheres with the rules, laws, and policies that are in place at the governmental level, as well as at the level of the organization and industry. As you can probably imagine, maintaining compliance for every project typically requires a considerable amount of time, attention to detail, and money. It’s for this reason that many organizations today partner with third-party companies that specialize in compliance services.
Why is Compliance Important?
As we’ve just seen, maintaining compliance is a crucial step towards ensuring that your team completes specific projects and HR functions in a legally sound manner. But what are the specific day-to-day operations within an organization that should be carefully monitored for compliance?
Here are a few examples of specific HR and business operations that will need to be subject to compliance:
- Interviewing and hiring procedures.
- Implementing anti-sexual harassment policies.
- Organizing and distributing employee benefits.
- Implementing and enforcing penalties for failing to conform to company policies.
- Building a strategy to communicate HR information with employees.
- Ensuring that all business operations and strategies conform with local, state, and federal laws.
