Holly Vivian, HR Manager

“IRIS Reach is proving invaluable at the moment as we are unfortunately entering into a Collective Consultation for redundancy situation. As a tool for communicating with everyone it’s been fantastic.The microsite functionality is fantastic. It has allowed us to keep everyone up to date with the latest meeting minutes, guidance notes etc. without having to email them out each time. Once people have the microsite link, they can just revisit it themselves for updates. Huge help!”
