Event description
In this webinar we will look at the implications for the people management and HR strategies in your business.

About this Event

As of 31st January 2020, the United Kingdom formally ceased its membership of the European Union. We are currently in a period of transition until the 31st December, 2020 to allow for trade and immigration arrangements to be reached, if possible.

During the transition period existing provisions around free movement of people will remain as they were. From 1st January, 2021 however business will need to have plans in place to support their workforce through a period of change.

In this webinar we will cover key areas of people contingency planning, including the main considerations you need to consider; to prepare you for Deal or No Deal outcomes.

About the event

We know that things will change around how we recruit and retain staff from European countries after Brexit. We know that things will change around how we deploy staff who are based in the UK and work in European countries after Brexit – but are you contingency planning to consider how different these might look depending on a Deal or No Deal outcome?

During this webinar, we will cover restrictions on the movement of people and what this could look like in the event of a deal or no deal outcome. We will discuss skills profiling and how to plan ahead for filling any potential gaps in the event of a deal or no deal outcome. We will review key policies and procedures you may need to review and update, and the consultation potentially needed to do this; and we’ll look at the opportunities that could be presented in this time of change to help your business to grow.

The key topics this 45-minute interactive webinar will cover:

  • What is happening during the period of transition?
  • What are the key areas you need to focus on in a people contingency plan?
  • What changes do you need to plan for, whatever the outcome?
  • How can you best prepare your workforce for the changes as well as yourselves?
  • What opportunities can you take advantage of as a result of this change?
