Airbus has taken the unusual step of writing a letter to it's staff to warn them about what it might mean if the UK were to leave the EU.
It's interesting that a company would go so far as directly addressing it's employees over an issue like this, but further highlights just how much concern Brexit is generating.
Again the main reason cited by Airbus was that they simply don't know what out will look like. Particularly with large organisations, the need to know what is going to happen next is key, as to drastically change the operations of a business is typically a long, complex and costly process.
It will be interesting to see how many other organisations speak out over the coming weeks highlighting their own concerns.
As a UK exit from the EU gathers more momentum, an important question to ask is how prepared is your organisation for the upheaval that could occur?
One of the world's largest aerospace firms has written to its 15,000 UK employees warning about the risks of voting to leave the European Union. In a letter to staff, Airbus Group says it makes "good economic sense" for Britain to stay in the EU and suggests the company might reduce its investment in the UK if there was a vote to leave. "We simply don't know what 'out' looks like," the letter states. The campaign to quit the EU has claimed support from 250 business leaders. Airbus employs 15,000 workers at 25 sites across the UK, generating £6bn a year making large aeroplanes and helicopters for civilian airlines and the RAF as well as satellites and cyber defence equipment. The company says it is indirectly responsible for a further 100,000 jobs among its British suppliers.
