On 23 June 2016, the UK decided by referendum to leave the European Union (EU) and the period that has followed has led to many questions and a lot of uncertainty. With 71% of UK managers thinking that Brexit will make skills harder to acquire for organisations operating in Britain, it's time for UK organisations to start planning for this potential reality.

Many employers are reporting that skills shortages are negatively impacting their organisations' prospects for future growth and there is the potential for skills shortages to worsen now that Britain has left the EU.

While the full impact is yet unknown, there is an urgent need for employers to address future talent challenges. Happily, there are things UK employers can do to start reaching potentially untapped sources of talent, and to make better use of their existing workforce to mitigate labour shortages. Taking action in both these areas can boost employer reputation, further supporting recruitment and retention efforts.

In this report, we explore a variety of talent strategies, the role of technology in bridging talent gaps, and what other countries that have gone through talent upheavals have done to move forward.
