The UK Government has declared its intention 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 for example are expected, their precise nature will not be certain for some time.
However, as the professional body for HR and people development, we will draw on our strong base of evidence and experience to continue engagement with members, law makers and other key stakeholders on these important considerations.
We will continue to focus 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.
