Less than 1 in 5 UK managers support 'hard Brexit'

Less than 1 in 5 UK managers support 'hard Brexit'
- Managers’ top five priorities from a new government are: Securing trade deals with non-EU countries – 66 per cent, maintaining access to EU talent by guaranteeing the rights of existing residents – 58 per cent, investing in capital infrastructure – 53 per cent, maintaining investment in the Apprenticeship Levy – 30 per cent and promoting UK higher education as an export – 27 per cent.
Just 19 per cent called for a reduction in corporate tax to be a top priority.
Ann Francke, CEO of the Chartered Management Institute, commented, “Political leaders looking for a strong mandate from this election must consider the views of UK’s 3.2 million managers, who are key drivers of the UK’s productivity. Managers have serious concerns about continued access to skilled workers, and this is motivating the desire for free movement of people Post-Brexit. All parties should focus post-election on the need to build an internationally competitive economy based on a world-class skilled workforce.”
