The date set for the UK to formally leave the EU approaches fast. Since Theresa May’s historical defeat in British Parliament, no one knows which type of Brexit we will have to expect. And still, the HR profession is expected to play a key role in supporting employers and employees to navigate their organizations through the short and medium-term implications of Brexit. Are you fit for change?
At our DGFP networking event, we will analyze the current state of negotiations, and illuminate the effects of Brexit on HR practices. We will discuss how HR can get effectively prepared for the various changes that are probably approaching sooner or later, including freedom of movement (permit of residence) and social security provisions.
Exchange with our experts from CMS and gain some insights from our British partner organisation CIPD.
The event takes place from 16:00 to 19:00 h at the DGFP in Frankfurt and is free of charge.
