We founded Irenicon in 1980 to help employers make employment law work for them. We were always a mixed disciplinary practice – something quite revolutionary at the time.
Over the years we have worked with some wonderful organisations, pushing the boundaries of how employment law can really be made to work without restricting the flow of the organisation.
During 2009 we had some heartbreaking enquiries from organisations who really needed our help but couldn’t afford our services. We have also developed a big client base of individuals who can't always afford one-to-one support for everything. We looked at ways of providing the quality of service we take so much pride in, in a cheaper way.
We didn’t want to hire cheaper employees with less experience, or dumb down what we do. We didn’t want to make you buy manuals, read lots of paperwork or follow our ‘rules’ and policies…
Our answer has been to group clients with common problems and create a KoffeeKlatch where we can support them together and reduce the cost per client.
