Staffing post brexit

Post Brexit Workforce may be a big issue for many of our clients. There has been a 13-26% drop in National Insurance registrations for workers from the various EU countries.

So where will the workers come from if we cannot source our workforce so readily from the EU?

Non- EU immigration policies are fairly restrictive so this must be something the Government addresses to prevent these real skill shortages in sectors such as IT and medicine. There have been suggestions such as scrapping the resident labour market test and lowering skill requirements to counteract the current difficulties.

There has been an increase in applications from Asia and India so perhaps companies are now just having to look worldwide for talent and not just from Europe. These roles are usually more skilled roles though and the problems will be with more typically low skilled work.
If you have noticed any effects from your workforce we would be interested to hear from you.
