While 2022 saw a return to some normality, the world of work still looks and feels very different to the pre-pandemic landscape. 2023 will be a challenging time for both employers and employees. The combined impact of the cost-of-living crisis, political turmoil, and ongoing talent shortages will shift priorities and create new demands. Here, Emma Ogden, SUMS Consultant, shares insight on what the top priorities may be for HR leaders in 2023.
To complement our thought piece on What to expect in employment law in 2023, this thought piece outlines what we predict will be the areas for specific focus and what will be high on the agenda for HR leaders during 2023. Having people orientation as a priority is integral to ensure a whole, institutional approach to enabling people sustainability, specifically contextualised against external drivers and the current landscape. These areas include recruitment and talent management, developing internal competencies, strategic resourcing, and organisation design. This is not a definitive list, and we recognise your priorities will be shaped by your institutional context, your strategies and aims, and staffing profile.
UK Universities are recommended to consider these influences and assess the implications.
