About Gravitate HR

Over 30 years of HR expertise and business experience.

Based in Central Scotland, we are a dynamic and experienced team offering an agile, flexible HR service for SMEs through to larger organisations. If your business is going through a period of change, scaling up or reorganising, or you have a specific HR issue that has arisen and need help, our team can give you the advice you need. Coupled with our knowledge and understanding of best practice and employment laws, we can ensure you meet your responsibilities as an employer and make the right decisions for your business. Simply book your free 20 minute consultation and tell us about your business and your current situation.
Set up in 2006 by Margery McBain, the gap she saw in the marketplace was the need for an HR team that was large and experienced enough to manage extensive and ongoing HR projects, while also being accessible to small and medium sized businesses who required ongoing or project support. We believe what sets us apart from other HR companies is our understanding and experience of the commercial drivers of a business and our ability to act as an extension of your team.

Straightforward, practical advice on managing any HR issue

We often become an integral part of our client’s team, offering ongoing support and services that assist their growth. These include:

  • Recruitment, onboarding and induction
  • Performance management
  • Managing absence
  • Dealing with disciplinaries and grievances
  • Managing documentation
  • For some we are also acting at Board Level, and helping to guide and steer overall strategy.

Every member of our team plays an important and valued role, as part of Gravitate HR and also with our clients, working from home, the office and onsite with clients. We find our work rewarding, interesting and constantly evolving.

HR with a difference

What makes us different from other HR companies is that not only do we have decades of HR experience and understanding of employment law, we also appreciate the needs of a business and how it works. We are both business focused and people driven. We offer a professional, objective opinion and a balanced approach of ensuring you meet your responsibilities as an employer while the needs of the business are also met.
We see the gap in the market is having a large enough, experienced HR team capable of managing extensive and complex HR projects, while also being accessible to small and medium sized businesses who require ongoing or project support. We offer both, from day to day HR administration through to larger, more difficult HR challenges.

Flexible pricing

You can simply pay as you go, work with us on a one off project or enjoy our fully retained HR support service.

One to one personal service

We give you a personal service that’s an extension of your business. No call centres, just great advice from a dedicated account manager.
