Gillian looks at the benefits of E-Learning for organisations in her latest blog post. If you would like to learn more or receive a demonstration on Gravitate HR’s E-Learning module, then please contact one of our advisers in Edinburgh or Glasgow.
The Equal Pay Act 1970 was the main piece of UK legislation with regard to the pay of men and women and has since been incorporated into the Equality Act 2010. The Act looks at pay in three main areas: (1) Work that is the same, or broadly the same; (2) Work of equal value; and (3) Work that is rated the same as that of a comparator. There are no shortage of articles and publications on the topic of equal pay, so I thought that I would write this article with a slightly different focus – the ‘Distributive Justice’ of equal pay under the Equality Act.

It is common for a lot of emphasis to be placed on Leadership – not just in a work and organisational context, but also in politics and sport for example. Sir Winston Churchill and Sir Alex Ferguson are a couple of notable examples of ‘Leading’ in their respective realms. However, the definition and description of Leadership can be quite complex – so what form(s) do you think Leadership comes in?
With a brief reference to academic literature, this blog looks at the seven “Leadership Theories”.
How much of a voice do your employees have within your organisation? By giving your employees a ‘voice’, you can enable your employees to raise concerns which can help to solve problems within an organisation (or troubleshoot them in the first place), and even identify efficiencies that can lead to an increase in productivity and the amount of income generated by the organisation.
This is the beginning of a series where we have created a simple checklist that any business can use to gauge how robust their HR is. No matter the size or complexity of your business, if you have employees you can use this checklist to self-audit your HR processes. Your responses will be kept entirely confidential.
