When we made the decision to look for an external partner to support our human resources (HR) function, our criteria was not only to find a company that had strong experience in HR activities and theory, but also able to provide us with user friendly software package that would meet our business requirements. We wanted a simple complete solution for the management of day to day HR activities such as holidays, absence reporting, etc. that supported decision making with solid, useable personnel data and reporting. We have been more than satisfied with the support and input of the team at Gravitas HR, as well as the HR system they have provided us with, Gravitas HR Toolkit. We look forward to a continuing mutually beneficial relationship with Gravitas HR.
What Our Clients Say
Paul J Batson, Managing Director, Master Abrasives Limited
We have been working with Gravitas HR for around 2 years now and have had nothing but exceptional service throughout. They have a very knowledgeable team and unlike some large consultancies you get a very personal, tailored service. Not only that but you get quick responses and regular meetings to ensure you are meeting all your HR needs. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gravitas HR to other companies.
Mike Warren, Chief Financial Officer, Intergence Limited
We found the assistance provided by Gravitas HR invaluable. As a small business it’s important not to get side-tracked with matters that are not your specialist field. When faced with HR issues Gravitas HR came to our rescue. We were quickly able to get back to what we do best in the knowledge our HR issues had been dealt with in an appropriate manner and would not come back to haunt us later. Gravitas HR will continue to be our 'go to' for HR solutions.
Sam Thewsey, Director, Draft Structural Detailing Ltd
We recently had a staffing issue which was difficult to resolve internally partly due to being a family run business we needed an independent overview. Gravitas HR came to our aid. They quickly resolved our problem keeping an open mind and offering various options. Knowing we were receiving sound professional advice took the worry and stress away. I would have no hesitation in contacting the team at Gravitas HR in the future.
Janet Braunston, Managing Director, Braunston Limited
Our business has evolved from a couple of employees to almost 20 in a short space of time and like many small businesses we don’t have the budget for a dedicated HR team.
Prior to working with Gravitas HR I met with a number of HR companies offering similar services however what made Gravitas HR stand out was their unique blend of skills. Their packages of support are clear, simple and fit in line with our business. They provide an extensive range of well researched HR services under one roof, some of which I hadn’t even considered.
They advise us on day to day issues as well as providing proactive strategic support and were able to help me manage a complex sensitive issue as soon as we’d had our first meeting. Dawn has carried out an in depth analysis of all our procedures and policies, updating them and bringing them in line with current employment legislation, this task alone has helped us reduce some of our overheads, focus more on areas that can help with employee attendance and also help me understand our legal responsibility in plain English. Mark has worked with me to devise a reward strategy for the business and has designed a bonus structure for our teams.
I recently had a meeting with my senior management team to hear their feedback on Gravitas HR and the unanimous comment was ‘I wish we had enlisted their services earlier’ and I agree. We very much see Gravitas HR as an extension of our business.
Zafir Bhatti, Managing Director, Nabida Care Management
Gravitas HR were recommended to us by our Financial Director and we have been working with them since September 2014. Dawn initially supported us with updating our contracts, policies and procedures but now provides ongoing advice and support with any staffing or HR issues.
Dawn’s knowledge of the industry is vast and we have been impressed with how quickly she grasped an understanding of our company’s values and culture. This has made the process uncomplicated and manageable. Many other HR companies require you sign up to a long term contract which we were reluctant to do. We like the flexibility of a retainer that Gravitas HR offer.
Pat McHugh, Director, LMH (Civil Engineering) Limited
Gravitas HR were recommended to us recently after we found ourselves with a difficult HR issue to deal with. It was important that we sought professional advice to avoid potential legal and financial consequences. Dawn’s approach was friendly and supportive. She guided us through the process from start to finish, investigating the issue, explaining the procedure and helping us to resolve the situation. The support we received was invaluable and I would highly recommend Dawn and the team at Gravitas HR.
John Kiely, Director, Millers Consultancy
Thank you for your prompt and extremely helpful advice, no matter what outcome there will be regarding this case, I will be happy to recommend your services to anyone; has been exactly what I needed at a point when I did not know where to turn first.
Simona Mihalache, Aura Commercial Cleaning Services
I found Gravitas HR to be extremely capable and understanding of our HR requirements when they were appointed to refresh some of our existing documentation and implement some new procedures. They come highly recommended.
Geoff Fone, Managing Director, JR Press
Thanks Gravitas, you’ve provided me with so much support and valuable information! It’s great to know you’re at the end of a phone when I get stuck.
Claire Short, Director, Ashgrove Clinic
