Employee & Industrial Relations

Experience

We are deep IR and ER experts with considerable experience and knowledge in the subject field. IER Solutions is not a legal practice overlapping into the ER or IR field.

Leading-edge global practices

Our experience has been gained in the UK and globally across multiple industries – enabled us to make careful and balanced judgements proportionate to the problems faced. It has also allowed us to understand and utilise the leading-edge global practices.

Working together

No external consultancy can run a company’s ER or IR – that has to be done from within the business by all levels of leadership in a joined-up and coordinated manner.

Developing strategy

IER Solutions can train, advise and support leadership, working with the HR and Line leaders to develop a strategy, which in turn become action plans. Utilising our experience and knowledge we provide workable solutions that are practical and deliverable.
