Employee Relations has replaced the term “Industrial Relations” which referred to collective relationships between employers and their workforce. Today’s interpretation of employee relations is much wider and refers to individual as well as collective workplace relationships. It reflects the increasing individualisation of the employment relationship following the rise of individual workplace rights and the decline in Trade Union reach and influence. I can support you in relation to wherever you are on the continuum from IR to ER and the preferred basis of your relationships with your employees.
