Say ‘hello’ to a better rewards software!

Let’s face it. Job evaluation and compensation management has become an expensive, complex and time-consuming process. We say it’s time for change. That’s why we’ve turned the traditional consulting model into a product-based SaaS - accessible, affordable and always there for your business.

Our mission and values

gradar is an ambitious, diverse team of HR and software experts working together to change the way organisations think about job grading projects. Our main goal is to remove the need for expensive consultants and empower more people to own their rewards processes and policies completely independently

We’re proposing a shift in the way job evaluation is carried out by providing a SaaS product that improves performance and reduces costs over existing approaches. We stand for a non-proprietary and affordable service that anyone can use - whether it’s companies and their rewards departments or independent HR professionals.

A message from our CEO

Hello there! It’s Phil here, Founder and CEO of gradar. I want to say a huge ‘thank you’ for finding our company and exploring our website to learn more about us. Oh - and I’d also like to talk to you about my basement for a moment (trust me, just go with it!)

I’d worked at one of the major consultancies for many years - and knew the traditional model of job grading and rewards management was simply not sustainable. So, in 2014, some friends and I met up in my ‘brain bunker’ to discuss a suitable alternative.

After many nights spent ‘underground’, we created a new and improved way to analyse and evaluate jobs - a modern, user-friendly tool that didn’t cost the earth to implement and didn’t rely on the secret knowledge of consultants to use effectively.

And so, gradar was born!

With an HR Tech DNA, gradar helps you build and maintain a job architecture under one roof in an easy-to-use software. No more project-based consultation. No more Excel- based deliverables. Just one fully-integrated, widely-compatible solution.

We combine job grading with job-specific competencies and skills, compensation analytics, equal pay reporting and the capability to align job grading results with salary surveys. It’s the full package! And it’s super affordable, too.

If there’s one thing you need to know about our company, it’s this. We are fully and wholeheartedly committed to eliminating the persistent need for external consulting support and empower our users to own their rewards policies and practices.

So, if that’s something you’re on board with - I’d love to have a chat!

“gradar has been revolutionary and the support we have received has been exceptional. The system is user friendly and I have great confidence in the fairness of the scoring.
