Course Overview

Organizations depend on the commitment and skillset of their people. In many ways they are the most valuable asset an organization has, and they are essential to future business success. People risk is therefore a critical area to audit, but a complex one which is at the heart of business behaviors and decision making processes. Energy and resources are invested in developing human resources and talent management strategies, processes and services.

The Auditing Human Resources & People Risk Masterclass will help you provide effective, professional insight and internal audit assurance over people risks, talent management and human resources. It will also include facilitator input, topical examples, short practical discussions and task-based exercises to build upon your existing knowledge.

There will be additional guidance on auditing recruitment and selection, auditing talent management, auditing employee engagement, auditing performance management and auditing training and development.

This masterclass covers the following IIA Global CPE competency areas:

  • Performance - (Engagement Fieldwork)
  • Performance - (Engagement Planning)
  • Performance - (Engagement Outcomes)
  • Environment - (Common Business Processes)

“People are not machines that can be programmed to do the same thing every time, and even the most trustworthy individuals sometimes get tired, sloppy, overconfident, over-trusting, suspicious, worried, frightened, angry, resentful, vindictive and a myriad of emotions in between. Some people make decisions that are illegal, causing losses to the firms in the form of theft and fraud; others may indulge in unethical acts which can cause loss to the reputation of their firms and fines by regulators. These are all potential causes and examples of people risk.” - Blacker and McConnell, ‘People Risk Management’
