Since the beginning of the 2020s, widespread change has consistently shaped the world of work. Where, when and how people work has changed, and employers continue to navigate a talent landscape that frequently favors employees and their wants and needs. In 2023, the employee experience will continue to take center stage as leaders prioritize personalization, real-time feedback and more.
Trend #1: Workers are forever changed and want work to be personal
The COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent labor market events have changed people's relationships with work, working and the workplace.
