With Article 50 having now been triggered, the UK is on its two-year countdown to exiting the EU.

 

During this period of uncertainty, it’s vital that employees are kept well-informed and reassured by delivering regular updates on key topics, and how they are likely to affect the business. Communications should:

  • be honest and transparent
  • remain impartial
  • set out possible opportunities
  • offer channels for two-way dialogue and questions

 

Failure to communicate will create an atmosphere of uncertainty – take a leadership approach. Today’s example from London Banks is a good starting point.

 

Businesses require certainty and employees are no different.
