Emma Wynne, Managing Director

Emma Wynne Character

At Gateway HR, we’ve combined our 80+years’ HR experience (including expertise in employee engagement and high-performing teams) and blended it with our new knowledge of what RDLC Pirates need. So, our HR service is designed to not merely repeat the bewildering array of employment law, but to give you valuable insights to drive performance and growth. And eliminate risk.

No unnecessary HR process. No confusing HR waffle. Just expert advice in your language to help you, your managers and your team.

Products – Building a People Platform

When you set up your business, you probably paid little attention to your HR forms and processes – so many other more important things to do. But, as you grow, they all become crucially important. These two products will build you the perfect platform to manage and develop your team; without tears and lawyers!

HR Audit

Our audit will analyse your business, your HR documentation and your core people-management processes to uncover what’s working, what’s not and how to improve. We have an exceptional offer until Jan 2019 for you Pirates.

Service Features:

  • A full audit of all your HR documentation and key people management processes.
  • £350+VAT
  • The £350 would be deducted from the price of a starter pack if bought with 3 months of the audit

And, as you know, the more you get to know the people in a business, the better the advice and service gets. Our consultants will help you and your managers build: employee engagement, retention plans and a high-performance culture. The package has a menu of options to suit your budget and needs.


It is paid for monthly for a half, whole or multiple days and is (if you would like) delivered on-site at your office(s) so managers and employees have access to the consultant to discuss any issues and attend meetings.

Pricing is based on half or whole day rate.

What our clients think

“James Gray initially engaged Gateway HR for some advice around the departure of a senior, long-serving staff member. The advice we got was clear and concise and the team were always on hand to support decisions that were being made around contractual obligations.

Following this initial engagement, we took advantage of the RDLC offer of the HR audit and starter pack to review all our existing forms and contracts. This is great value as it gave us a new suite of compliant documents that are all consistent and tailored to us. We have also committed to a longer-term arrangement with the Peace of Mind service offering which ensures Gateway are always on hand for any guidance. We have been very happy with the support to date and look forward to continuing the relationship.”
