At the end of each unit, DB participation is assessed based on level of engagement and the quality of the contribution to the discussion. DBs allow learners to learn through sharing ideas and experiences as they relate to course content. Because it is not possible to engage in two-way dialogue after a conversation has ended, no posts to the DB are accepted after the end of the unit. Learners must demonstrate an appropriate depth of understanding of course content to receive credit for having submitted substantive posts. Typically, this is achieved with 3–4 strong paragraphs for Main Posts and 2–3 strong paragraphs for Response Posts.
You are a senior leader in a school or business, and have been asked to conduct an internal audit of the organization’s HR functions. If you were to write a memo to supervisors in your organization regarding the need for an internal audit of your HR functions what would be the key elements you would outline in your memo and why? What would be the primary focus and purpose of an internal audit of your organization’s HR functions? What might be controversial about such a process? Explain.
Use your textbooks, the library, personal experience, and Internet resources to review the principles and concepts in conducting a human resources management (HRM) audit.

What is the relationship between such audits and the academic or training operations of a school or business?
In your own words, post a substantive response to the Discussion Board question(s) and comment on other postings. Your response should address the DB question(s) and move the conversation forward. You will be graded on the quality of your postings, including mastery of the concept as well as critical thinking. If asked for your opinion, do not simply state that it is a good or bad idea; elaborate on your reasons and argument. Include enough detail to substantiate your thinking as well as your position on the questions or comments.v
