Gravitate HR becomes your HR Department.
We provide HR support as you need it. We are email@example.com. We are on site, at the end of a telephone, answering your emails – we are there to provide support and solutions to help you manage all your HR.
Supporting your business
Our HR support service will aide you and your employees throughout their journey in your employment, from before joining, to starting out with you, right through their development and contribution to the day they leave (and sometimes afterwards).
We agree a level of service and an indicative number of hours per months and this is reviewed on a quarterly basis. For clients with smaller teams we offer a quarterly service – which offers the same range of services accessed over a quarter rather than monthly.

HR Strategy to Support Business Objectives
It is important to have a clear HR strategy to support your business objectives.
With our HR strategy, we can support you to evaluate, structure and restructure your business, develop a change strategy and help you to manage this providing you with the means to measure and benchmark in different areas.
Developing clear roles and responsibilities is core to ensure everyone understands how they contribute to the business objectives.
A well defined plan to allow you to cascade objectives to the team and individuals is key to support you to build on developing employee communication and engagement.
Developing & Managing Contractual Framework
It is an employer’s legal duty to provide all employees with a written statement of terms and conditions within two months of their start date. We can support you to produce robust variations of terms and conditions e.g. permanent and temporary contracts, Directors Service Level Agreements, non employee contractor agreements.
Up to date employment policies in line with current legislation are essential to allow you to manage your employee journey. We can support you to create, communicate and implement, update and maintain your employment policies in the form of an Employee Handbook.
Recruitment & Selection
A well planned clearly structured recruitment process is essential when recruiting for your organisation. This will allow you to monitor costs and to monitor the value of your recruitment process. We can support you to manage all elements of your recruitment process from the initial stages of carrying out job analysis and creating role specifications, to selection and decisi
We implement a robust process to ensure that all new employees have the right to work in the UK and can provide guidance on visa applications and other special arrangements that new recruits may have.
Once selected, we can support you to administer the new starts by producing a comprehensive offer letter and contractual terms. When your new recruits have started we can help you to manage and retain your new recruits and current employees. The reward benchmarking process is one way we can support you to do this.
A well structured induction program is vital to integrating new employees into your business smoothly and effectively. This is to ensure that your new starts have access to all the information required to settle into the team.
We can provide advice, structure and administer your induction program to ensure that your new starts fully understand their contractual obligations, company working practices and in turn company expectations.
Learning and Development
Development planning and succession planning are important for continual growth and development of the business. We can support you in this process providing coaching and mentoring where relevant.
Poor employee attendance as a result of sickness can be extremely costly to an organisation and it is important to manage this before it potentially escalates into a larger problem.
We can provide you the guidance and tools to allow you to manage employee sickness effectively and other reasons for employee absence including the management of maternity and paternity leave and holiday management.
A robust set of employment policies assist’s in the effective management of employment issues which could have a costly detrimental effect on your business. We can support you in the management of Disciplinary and grievance cases providing guidance and access to mediation and dispute resolution, management of redundancy and other employee issues that require sensitivity and application of employment legislation.
To get the most out of your employees and to enhance employee engagement it is important to have a clearly structured performance management process in place. This will allow you to develop performance within the company to achieve your business objectives, mange poor performers and focus on the longer term goals of your organisation.
Different elements make up your performance management process and we can support you to implement all elements of this process:
- Probationary Review Process – Early stages of the employee journey
- Annual/Quarterly Appraisal – meeting and setting employee objectives
- Management of Poor Performers
- Succession Planning

Reloaded Productions Ltd
I would recommend Gravitate HR to any emerging business and especially to those in the gaming sector. Their approach is professional, friendly and hands-on. Our needs were based around putting in place the employment basics; establishing a handbook and more formal practises. Gravitate HR got to know our business well; our culture and working arrangements, which then helped in tailoring our employment structure and documents. Another need we had was immigration support; a visa renewal and becoming Border Agency sponsors. Gravitate HR helped us through this process, answering queries and streamlining the process. The time and knowledge required for this was such that we were glad we had someone to turn to! I would definitely recommend them as experts in the immigration field for advising small employers.

Client in Glasgow
Following a recommendation from the CEO of another Glasgow business I made contact with Gravitate HR and being impressed with what they were able to offer us put a support contract in place. That was some four years ago and they have successfully steered us through some complex issues including an employment tribunal, a TUPE transfer and recently due to changes in the services we provide redundancies. Their advice has always been spot on, clear and precise and above all understandable to our leadership team. With over 70 staff it is very much to Gravitate HR’s credit that we are able to manage the work force without an in house HR professional and be fully compliant with the current level of legislation and red tape. Gravitate HR’s outstanding strength is their staff and detailed knowledge of what is right for our business. I would most strongly recommend them to any organisation or business.
Thomson Gray Ltd
We engaged Becky at Gravitate HR to review and update all our employment policies, procedures and contracts. This involved consultation with all our staff over the changes and training our senior management team. She was extremely efficient, pleasant and good fun to work with and the feedback from our staff has been very positive. We have retained Becky to provide HR advice and input to the company. I would not hesitate to recommend Becky to anyone.
