WRITING THE AUDIT REPORT

 

The HRD audit report is meant for practitioners and is not a research report. Its main objective is to highlight areas that need improvement and that need to be acted upon. Its purpose also is to help the top management and the HRD staff to recognize the strength of the company and retain the same. It is likely to be read widely by the line managers and the top management. Since the line managers and top management are not accustomed to read long research reports extra care should be taken to make the HRD audit report short and precise.

 

It is useful to prepare it in bullet form highlighting the strengths and weaknesses. A model outline of the report is given below.
