A number of indian office workers standing around stressed

Government audits can be stressful, time-consuming, and expensive. For many business owners, the audit process can feel like a necessary evil that they simply have to endure with no support in sight. But what if there was a better way? What if you could take control of your company’s document compliance and pass your next audit with ease? Why today’s processes just don’t work?

Four Steps to get your company Compliant and Audit Ready.

Step 1: To start, create a list of all the documents you need to collect and then begin reaching out to your employees to collect all the missing documents. Many companies use “office boys” to constantly reach out to the employees to gather these documents. This can be a heavily manual process for both your employees and the HR department, but it is necessary in order to be compliant. The easiest, and most efficient (and least expensive) way to collect these documents is to utilize a system that keeps track and automates the collection of these manual tasks.

Step 2: Once you have ALL the documents you need to store these files in the correct place and have administrative access to them whenever needed. Many companies use file cabinets, which isn’t ideal, or store these documents in the “cloud” so that they can retrieve them when needed. Congratulations if you made it here. This is a great second step, but how do you know what is really there, what is missing and if it is you have the latest file? Unfortunately, you don’t. Companies looking to cut cost, and time utilizing simple systems that not only store the documents but provide visibility into what documents by person is proper, what is missing and/or expiring.

Step 3: Ensuring you’re compliant isn’t just one and done thing. As you onboard new employees, documents expire or you just simply need to gather new documents from your employees you need to repeat steps one and two all over again. Your HR department must be ready and constantly checking calendars to know when to collect any expiring documents or uncollected previous documents. Since these tasks continue to happen, the best case scenario for the company is to set up a solution that automates all these tasks which ensures a) they get done b) employees can focus on growing the business versus burdened with tasks. 

Step 4: Here comes the auditor. Now what? If you have followed steps 1-3 all your documents will be organized and easily provided to your auditor. If you’re utilizing a manual process you’ll need to double check each person and file and chase down any missing documents. If you’ve implemented an automated solution, you’ll be able to quickly see the compliance, automate the requesting and consumption of documents and easily provide the auditor a packet of all the documents needed…which just the click of a button. How do you know you have all the documents? By implementing a compliance solution, HR is always in the know and owners have peace of mind that the job is being done right.

It is highly encouraged companies adapt easy-to-use solutions for their employees and document compliance. These systems not only reduce fines and keep the government off your back, they alleviate stress for your departments, and keep your business running efficiently saving businesses both human and financial and keep the government off your back.
