Braced for Brexit? The roadmap you need
It’s the word on everyone’s lips – and we mean everyone. That’s right, we’re now only a matter of months away from… Brexit.
On Friday, 29 March 2019 (at 11 pm to be precise), the UK will officially leave the European Union, the first country in its history to do so and it seems that the news can talk of little else. From political wrangling to stockpiling food – the speculations and potential consequences are anticipated to spread far and wide.
Now, we wouldn’t blame you if you were suffering from more than a bit of Brexit boredom; how many times can a news reader possibly say the same word? But, have you taken the time to consider the possible impact Brexit will have on your business?
A report released by the British Chamber of Commerce earlier this year revealed that up to 62% of small-to-medium businesses haven’t done a risk assessment to safeguard themselves against Brexit. Furthermore, 20% of companies in Britain are considering moving part or all of their business to Europe so they can maintain trading continuity.
From the status of EU national employees to shifting and changing Health & Safety legislation, there’s a lot of noise and a fair deal of uncertainty surrounding Brexit, especially when it comes to core business competency areas like HR and Health & Safety.
