My First Week at Gravitate

My first week at Gravitate HR has went by in a flash but I already feel part of the team. I am beginning to get to grips with all the great things Gravitate HR do with their clients and I am really enjoying learning about what we can do for them.

Having previously been a manager in retail, I began my HR career in 2014 when I completed my Masters degree in Human Resource Management. I went on to work for an outsourcing company as a People Advisor and became a Senior HR Advisor. I then moved to a role as an Employment Law Advisor in 2017 before joining the team at Gravitate HR. I am very keen on continuing my HR career and was delighted when Margery chose me to work with the team.

I have had a great first week and could not ask for a better team to work with. They have made me feel very welcome and I am already working with some of our clients and focusing on their HR goals for 2019. I am looking forward to working with the team!

Interactional Justice within an Organisation

In my previous two blogs, I have looked at the two most common (or most recognised) forms of Organisational Justice, Distributive Justice and Procedural Justice; however, an equally important facet, and one that has a natural link with the main facets (particularly Procedural Justice), is ‘Interactional Justice’. This ties in with the whole idea that the role of justice and fairness (such as the courtesy and openness of interpersonal behaviour) in relation to motivation is becoming more prominent.

This blog will specifically look at Interactional Justice within the context of Equal Opportunities and Fair Treatment in an organisation. If your organisation could benefit from tailored Equal Opportunities and Fair Treatment policies, then please do not hesitate to contact one of our advisers in Glasgow or Edinburgh.

The Procedural Justice of a Disciplinary Process

Following on from my blog last month which looked at the Distributive Justice of Equal Pay under the Equality Act, I thought I would look at ‘Procedural Justice’ – another important and well-known facet of ‘Organisational Justice’ – with particular regard to ensuring an organisation’s disciplinary procedure is consistent and fair.
