Webinar Replay: HR in the Age of Brexit
The Confederation of British Industries and the Federation of Small Businesses stated that Brexit is one of the key issues facing businesses in the UK. According to the FSB’s report A Skilful Exit: What small firms want from Brexit*:
- 1/5 of small business employers have EU staff
- 1/3 of small firms do business with or within the EU
- 72% of small businesses recruited all their EU staff when they were living in the UK
Whatever the outcome, Brexit will impact on businesses of all sizes, but what opportunities does it present and what actions can HR professionals take?
