IES research on employee engagement has revealed the substantial impact that uncertainty and insecurity has on motivation and job satisfaction. With the short-term impacts of Brexit on employee engagement relatively well documented, we are now looking ahead to the mid- to long-term effects that Brexit could pose on employee engagement in the UK.

This twitter chat will be a chance to discuss the likely impacts of Brexit on employee engagement and ask questions of our panel of experts, who will guide the discussion and offer their own insights. The panel will include:

Stephen Bevan Amanda Callen Dilys Robinson

Stephen Bevan
Head of HR Research Development

Amanda Callen
Senior Research Fellow

Dilys Robinson
Principal Associate

We invite all those interested in the topic to join the chat and offer their own thoughts on the questions posed by @BrexitObserv, from HR practitioners to researchers or simply those interested in the wider impacts that Brexit may have on UK employment, workplaces, and wellbeing.

The Brexit Observatory twitter chat will stimulate discussion around questions such as:

  • Which organisations or sectors are most likely to be impacted by Brexit?
  • Is the impact on employee engagement limited to organisations that rely heavily on workers from the EU?
  • To what extent will the UK’s decision to leave the EU encourage segmentation amongst employees?
  • Considering the drivers of employee engagement, which of these drivers are likely to be affected by the UK leaving the EU?
  • What can organisations do to try to counter anxiety and keep engagement levels up as we wait for the terms of the UK’s departure to be revealed?

We look forward to hearing insights from a range of individuals and hope that the twitter chat serves to stimulate debate around the subject.
