Like many mobility professionals, I've attended my fair share of Brexit events (including our own) and also met with a good number of corporate HR and global mobility leaders.
There's no doubt that the organisations who are most affected by the Brexit vote are either reliant upon skilled and non-skilled EU talent or, as described within this Financial Times article, those conducting financial business across the EU. That said, at Plus Relocation, we'd still advocate the benefit of conducting a thorough audit of your workforce to establish those UK and EU nationals who will be most affected post 2019.
In addition, we encourage all HR and Mobility leaders to grasp the opportunity to become a strategic resource to your internal tax, talent and finance colleagues. We've published several papers on this topic and these can be accessed via our website.
Warnings from financial services companies about their plans to move jobs or activities out of the UK because of Brexit are coming thicker and faster than ever, according to new research. EY, the consultancy, has found that more than a quarter of the 222 largest UK financial services firms that it tracks have said they will shift resources out of the country or change their domicile as a result of Brexit.
