In a historic referendum on 23 June 2016, the UK voted to leave the EU.
It’s now vital for the Government and UK businesses to take time to assess properly the long-term impact of any decisions that they make.
The ‘leave’ vote will prompt consultations between government, organisations and employees across all sectors and representative bodies. We’ll draw on our strong base of evidence and experience of the world of work to add our voice to these important discussions.
While the impact of the referendum result won’t be felt immediately, there is the potential for major changes to occur in future to employment law, immigration and the ability to bring the right skills into businesses.
We’ll be engaging with our members and key stakeholders over the coming months to explore how the UK’s decision to leave the EU will affect HR. To support you during this period of unprecedented uncertainty, we’ll publish relevant resources and details of our ‘Brexit’ activities on this dedicated hub.
