Is BREXIT damaging UK businesses?

As a nation we have still not comprehended the BREXIT impact, and by the time we start taming this Leviathan it will morphed into yet another complex beast.

This is one of a number of questions asked by a new Henley Business School research project, examining the immediate and longer-term impacts of BREXIT on senior managers and their organisations across the UK.

Led by Professor Nada Kakabadse, Head of Marketing and Reputation and Dr Nadeem Khan, the study incorporates the views of 450 senior managers currently working in Britain. One executive participating in the research comments:

“As a nation we have still not comprehended the BREXIT impact, and by the time we start taming this Leviathan it will morphed into yet another complex beast.”

Professor Kakabadse explains:

“Our work explores how the political, social and economic impacts of BREXIT are being felt across the country.

“Key questions asked include: ‘How do businesses feel about the UK’s exit from the EU? Will BREXIT make the breakup of the UK more likely? How much harder will it be for non-UK nationals to stay? and, will local issues become more of a priority over global concerns?

“Our initial research indicates that the majority of UK organisations are still very much split on this issue, with some feeling there will be little or no change, while the majority believe an exodus of talent and other unforeseen consequences will negatively impact the country.”
