“Brexit – what does it mean for HR?”

with Bob Morton, President EAPM and Chair CIPD Enterprises Ltd.

The UK Government has now passed legislation to trigger Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty by the end of March 2017, to set into motion official negotiations and formal processes for the United Kingdom to leave the European Union. Unless otherwise agreed in accordance with Article 50, the UK’s membership of the EU will end on that trajectory no later than April 2019.

While changes to the labour market, employment law and immigration policy are expected, their precise nature will not be certain for some time. However, as the professional body for HR and people development, CIPD is drawing on our strong base of evidence and experience to continue engagement with members, law makers and other key stakeholders on these important considerations.

We are focusing on how HR, in particular, can help build a more productive, stronger workforce, and workplaces that engender responsible and sustainable practices, matters that will become increasingly critical. CIPD is calling on members and stakeholders to use Brexit as a stimulus for applying focus to what we should already be doing as an economy and a society: to get the fundamentals right, to build a stronger, more productive workforce, and workplaces that engender growth and inclusiveness.

The presentation and discussion will cover Brexit and:

  • Recruitment and retention of EU migrant workers
  • Investment in skills
  • Pay expectations over the next 12 months
  • Export competitiveness
  • Post-Brexit readiness and planning
  • Employer views on future relationship with EU, Schengen and EFTA countries.
