Immigration was a defining issue in the EU referendum campaign. And following the vote to leave, building a new migration system that balances economic need with the political agenda will be a significant challenge.
But this is a challenge that businesses must have a say in - a system informed by business rather than imposed on business is essential to the future economic growth and prosperity of the UK.
The CBI has been working closely with members since June to identify the business priorities for a new settlement on migration. And drawing on new data from the forthcoming CBI/Pertemps Employment Trends Survey 2016, businesses are clear that we need a system that supports firms’ to access the people and skills needed to grow and build a society that is more prosperous for all.
