At Gravitate HR and across our client base, we are seeing an increasing trend towards organisations utilising HR software platforms to reduce their administration and streamline many of their people related processes.

With such a diverse client portfolio, we operate a flexible approach to our retained HR Support and do not insist on clients signing up to HR Software. We do partner with Breathe HR to offer clients a platform which is designed with SMEs in mind and is straightforward to implement, use and maintain. Here are some of the top features and benefits of HR platforms for anyone  considering implementing HR Software in their business.

Key Features

  • Holiday and absence recording – Traditionally seen as admin heavy and burdensome, manage these and other key HR related processes with a few clicks.
  • Secure e-document storage – Both individual and company-wide documents easily uploaded and securely stored. And GDPR compliant.
  • Performance Management – Log 1-2-1s, appraisal notes and key objectives with deadlines, reducing Manager admin and providing employees easy access and ownership towards the achievement of their goals.
  • 24/7 access – Employees & Managers can access in work as well as on their devices, company notifications and updates made to everyone at the same time.
  • Free Demonstration/Trial – We are happy to provide a demonstration of Breathe HR including an on-screen look at the platform and how to navigate it. A completely free 14-day trial is then available with no-obligation to sign up.

 Key Benefits

  • More time for business owners and managers to focus on their day job and engaging their team instead of completing spreadsheets and sending emails.
  • Seamless onboarding – advance communication with new employees to get them access and let them build their profile. They can review company documentation including the organisational structure and build their familiarity with the system – making them feel more welcome when they join.
  • Create up to date reports on a range of HR related metrics to help complement other management information to identify issues/trends and inform decision making.
  • Secure Central electronic personnel file meaning no more paper files or documents saved loose and scattered across an e-drive. Visibility and access to the documents is controlled by key personnel to maintain security.
  • Easy to update and track changes to working arrangements, terms and conditions, personnel information and progress on objectives

Complementing the Services

We have managed the set up and continued maintenance of many of our client’s Breathe HR accounts and regularly receive great feedback on how much time and effort they feel this saves them. Gravitate access and manage the system from the back end, allowing us to seamlessly work behind the scenes updating personnel files, creating and extracting reports and managing calculations without having to go direct to Managers internally – a win-win for all.

This adds even more value to the core outsourced HR support services that we provide our retained clients.
