Org Audit

It can be difficult to get an accurate picture of how an organization truly functions. It gets doubly hard when an accurate picture is needed to set a change project in motion quickly.

HR uses multiple systems to manage employees, but not one of them alone can show exactly who does what and reports to who.

The fastest way to do an org audit is to go directly to the source: the managers and employees who know the most. It’s amazing what insights can be gained when individual perceptions are aggregated, verified, and condensed into a simple to understand chart.
