As the world of work evolves, so do the benefits needed to entice workers.
The divide between the needs of employers and employees has widened in recent years, but could a loosening job market change the trajectory of the workplace?
According to data from LinkedIn, 70% of leaders around the world say that hiring has been difficult. However, it appears that the competition for talent is easing up as layoffs sweep the technology sector.
Although workplace participation seems to be creeping up from previous years, the methods in which employers attract new talent has changed.
Instead of putting all their eggs into the remote work basket, companies in 2023 are likely to focus on a spectrum of benefits moving forward.
While increased pay is nearly always a safe method in attracting and retaining employees, keeping up with the pace of inflation at the onset of a recession has become a difficult feat. This is why employees have started prioritizing additional benefits, like flexible working and DEI efforts.
In short, the workforce is at a crossroads and there is no one-size-fits-all solution. Instead, the future will require a much more agile approach — one that takes all external factors into consideration and focuses on providing a well-rounded work culture.
