How can we help?

Business Employment

Industrial relations & trade unions

All companies need to be prepared for the unexpected, we can help organisations identify and prepare and provide a rapid response to industrial relations issues, whilst also strengthening employee engagement.

We have a proven track record in collective employment relations law and strategy, crisis management and contingency planning, and industrial disputes.

Success may be measured in the way a business reacts to a crisis. Knowing how the business will react in a crisis to protect its reputation, assets, stakeholders and commercial interests is vital. We have a wealth of experience assisting companies in early-stage contingency planning through to response on the day a crisis occurs.

We are highly experienced in dealing with industrial disruption, including union negotiations, strike management and avoidance, contingency planning and management negotiation training. We are also conscious that there is an increasing trend for the approach of unions to be more sophisticated and international, focusing on campaigns that target reputation and apply stakeholder pressure using social media and PR rather than just strikes.

In addition we can provide specialist industrial relations consultants to support your existing HR resource through our subsidiary HR company, Forbury People Limited, and deliver industrial relations training from foundation to strategic levels.

An exceptional balance of expertise and personality.”
