Perspectives on Brexit - strategic considerations and planning

Since the result of the EU referendum on 23 June, organisations have been buffeted by market forces and other factors beyond their control. With some commentators predicting a continuing “decade of uncertainty” what do organisational and people leaders see as the key areas of priority? How can they remain resilient and prepare for immediate and longer term change?

CIPD hosted a webinar, Perspectives on Brexit, Strategic Considerations and Planning, which brought together a panel of industry experts to discuss medium-term strategic and planning considerations following the EU referendum. Our panel shared their experience and insight on:

  • the issues and challenges that businesses and organisations are expected to face following the referendum result
  • strategies for responding to immediate and medium-term uncertainty
  • leading an organisation through a period of fluctuating demand and unpredictable economic and trading circumstances

Our guest speakers included:

  • Danny Mortimer – Chief Executive, NHS Employers
  • Alan Price – Chief Executive Officer, Croner Group Ltd
  • Steven Toft – Director, Crucible
  • Ian Brinkley – Labour Market Economist
  • Ben Willmott – Head of Policy and Public Affairs, CIPD
