We are a family-owned business based in Tunbridge Wells and employ 30 staff. In my role as Financial Director, I deal not only with the payroll and personnel matters, but all other aspects of the finances associated with the sales ledger, purchase ledger and general day-to-day running of the company.
As the complexities of Employment law have continued to intensify over the last few years, I found myself becoming increasingly ‘bogged down’ with personnel matters and unable to dedicate my time equally to the other responsibilities I managed within the company. Knowing how important it was, as an Employer, to ensure that every course of action regarding personnel was handled correctly, the decision was taken to outsource our HR requirements.
I met up with Gillian back in July 2011 and, after our initial meeting, had no hesitation in appointing her as our HR consultant. Gillian identified that our current employment contracts were out of date and, within 2 weeks of her appointment, Gillian had drawn up new simplified employment contracts and handbooks for all our staff which complied with current legislation. Since her appointment, Gillian has proved to be invaluable. It is a huge comfort to know that whatever staffing issues we may encounter, I can rely on Gillian to draw up the appropriate documentation promptly and guide us through every step of any procedure we may need to follow. I am now able to dedicate more time to my other duties and really feel like a huge weight has been lifted from my shoulders!

We have worked with GA HR for 2 years and outsourced all our HR requirements to them. We have had peace of mind that our HR is in capable hands at all times.
“We initially commissioned GA to undertake a TUPE process. By nature the TUPE process is one that requires a thorough understanding of the pitfalls and the procedures involved.Gillian is meticulous in her approach never leaving any stone un-turned. We have complete confidence in her ability to act on our behalf enabling us to get on and do what we do best. We have been so impressed with how Gillian has dealt with this project that we will now look to utilise Gillian for all our HR requirements going forward and recommend her to any organisation looking for HR services.”

“GA helped us immensely by compiling complex contracts of employment and all of the neccessary policies that we needed for our staff.We gained peace of mind from knowing that we’ve covered ourselves and are operating within current legislation. Just as importantly Gillian took the whole headache away, leaving us time to get on with running our business. I’d have no hesitation in reccomending their services to any business in a similar position.”
GA has worked with Gateway Distributions for over a year now and the service we have received from them has been second to none, our Consultant is very thourough with investigations, very professional when dealing with sensitive situations and all written contracts and reports are of a very high standard, I would recommend GA’s services without hesitation.
