The CHRO Trends for 2023
After several years of challenges like the COVID-19 pandemic, supply chain difficulties, and economic uncertainty, organizations are wondering what to expect in 2023. Unfortunately, there are still adverse remnants of the previous three years. Among others, the war in Ukraine continues, with no end yet in sight. Nor is there any shortage of changes underway in the world of work.

“While there have been whispers of a recession this year, the government has taken action to tamp down inflation and lessen the negative impacts on the greater economy,” said a report from Cowen Partners Executive Search. “DEI remains vital to companies seeking to maintain and improve their brand reputations and culture. There’s also a greater emphasis on company benefits like flexibility and remote work.”
