In a new video on our Brexit hub, the CIPD's Director of Ireland, Mary Connaughton, talks about some of the effects Ireland is already seeing, including:

  • an 11% drop in export values due to changes in exchange rates
  • a slowing down of movement in the labour market between the UK and Ireland, due to uncertainty around tax and pensions
  • an opportunity for jobs growth as more organisations look to set up European hubs in Ireland

Mary reiterates the CIPD's advice for all employers to set up a dedicated working group to look at the impact that Brexit may have on their organisation, including workforce planning.
