Audit Scotland help the Auditor General and Accounts Commission ensure organisations spending public money in Scotland use it efficiently and effectively through auditing various aspects of how public bodies work.
Recruiting successfully is an essential part of ensuring Audit Scotland deliver a world-class public sector audit. Recently they have worked closely with colleagues across the business to refresh the induction process and have created a new one-year onboarding map for new starters. This describes key events and development expectations over the first 12 months of working with them.
The HR & OD team check in with both new starters and line managers after three and six months of employment to gain feedback on their experience. They also arrange a meeting with the COO so that new starters can gain a broader appreciation of Audit Scotland's vision and values.
Their vision is to be a world-class audit organisation that improves the use of public money. They communicate their vision and progress through a number of ways. Each year they update and share the strategic and corporate plan with colleagues; these both clearly communicate the mission / vision, why they exist, what they do and how they do it.
Audit Scotland fully recognise that a lot of workplace stress can come from not having a say over your job. To increase people's sense of autonomy and control, they have worked with colleagues from across the business to redesign their jobs. Role profiles replace descriptions and centre on purpose, rather than tasks. All employees have now transferred to four broad-banded profiles.
