As organizations prepare to head into a new year of business, McLean & Company, the trusted research and advisory partner for HR and leadership professionals worldwide, has revealed five key data-based employee and workplace trends in its HR Trends Report 2023. The timely report will assist HR leaders in their efforts to plan for and respond to the ever-evolving future of work, inform strategies and best practices that will support HR’s function within their organizations, and ultimately create a workplace in which everyone thrives in 2023 and beyond.
“HR’s effectiveness and role as a strategic partner to organizations is stronger than ever,” says William Howard, director of HR research and advisory services at McLean & Company and one of the principal research leads for the report. “HR practitioners are being relied on to direct decisions regarding critical business functions. Now more than ever, organizations need to prioritize employee development, wellbeing, and the employee experience, because the alternative appears to be lost productivity, poor performance, and high rates of turnover.”
The five key trends identified by McLean & Company are based on survey data collected in September 2022 from more than 1,000 HR professionals in a variety of roles, seniority levels, organizational sizes, geographic locations, unionization categories, industries, and work models.
