Whatever the size or nature of your business, it’s time to realise that an internal audit really is your best friend! In fact, if you are a small business, it’s a real asset. So why do some managers fear it, or even dismiss it as unimportant?
For any organisation serious about producing quality goods or services, and achieving excellent customer service, while protecting its workers and still turning a profit, an internal audit is a very valuable tool. And unlike a third party audit, internal auditors are only bound to report back to management, or other stakeholders, so it could be classed as an ‘inside job’!
Better Management Systems
In just the same way accounts need to be audited to ensure everything is working as it should, so too do management systems. Let’s face it, there is little point having a system in place at all if nobody is taking any notice of its results.
As businesses face increasing legislation and competition, I would go so far as to say that every organisation could benefit from putting a key employee, or employees, through internal auditing training. That way, potential risks and problems can be identified and dealt with immediately, and the business is more likely to stay on track.
Professional Trainers In Brisbane
This management method is now much easier to put into place, thanks to highly professional Auditor Training Centres. but take note, not all training centres are the same! Look for one that employs qualified lead auditors as trainers; is experienced across all major industries, and is across changes in International Standards. In Queensland, your best choice would be SC Training Centre.
In just the same way that efficiency, profitability and legal compliance is considered part of ‘internal control’, so, too, is internal auditing. It supports management, delivers better risk management, keeps financial goals in sight and, ultimately, will ensure a better experience for the client.
