Construction Industry and HR Audit: Could it Support the Organizational Objectives and Strategies? A Case Study from the Egyptian Market

Adel Mahmoud Al Samman


It is a usual thing for construction companies to have multiple projects progressing in synchronization with each other and covering multiple geographical locations. With such nature of work, the burden on the HR department gets heavier than usual in assuring that the department, with its diversified activities and locations, is linked to the top strategies and objectives of the business. This is a case study of a construction company human resource function in an endeavor to link such function with the overall business objectives and strategies. To achieve this, there would be an analysis and evaluation of the dominant organizational culture, and a use of the Human Resource Audit tool to make a detailed assessment of the current human resource function situation. By doing so, results obtained by both analyses are used as a guideline in developing a model of human resource department’s strategies and plans oriented with the overall business’ objectives and strategies. The design chosen for this research is the Case Study that would point out the issues of concern within the company, and hence, use the findings in achieving the objectives.

Keywords: HR Audit, Strategic HR Management, Organizational Culture, Construction Industry, HR Practices.
