This report, authored by IES on behalf of the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD), offers guidance on the workforce planning implications of the UK leaving the European Union. The guide for employers provides HR practitioners with an overview of workforce planning and a practical structure for determining their own Brexit resourcing strategies.

The report offers guidance on the key steps that organisations should take, including an assessment of the external, as well as the internal, factors that may have a bearing on organisations. The report details how a PESTLE analysis could be conducted to offer a clear understanding of how external factors could impact organisations, whilst internal factors will focus more closely on the organisation's workforce.

The report goes on to offer guidance on scenario planning and the need to monitor developments and ensure that any changes are being managed and communicated effectively.
