A focus on total wellbeing

There is a silent crisis in the organizations. According to the American Psychological Association (APA), nearly 3 out of every 5 employees reported negative effects of work-related stress in the wake of the pandemic. 87% of Americans feel concerned about inflation and 7 in 10 employees worry that their compensation has not kept pace with changes in purchasing power.

HR has arguably been affected. The function played a leading role during the pandemic, which has had its impact. Workvivo’s research found that a staggering 98% of HR professionals reported feeling burned out at some point in the past six months.

Our first HR trend for 2023 is that organizations will take more responsibility for this growing burnout crisis among business workers. First, because it is the right thing to do, and second, because it threatens the continuity of the organization.

The first step will be for HR to overcome its own burnout crisis. While this may go against the nature of human resources, which must focus on helping others, HR professionals must first put on their own oxygen masks. Otherwise, the department will not be able to help the rest of the organization.

After this, we expect HR to move towards a more proactive approach to wellness and resilience. It involves developing a more holistic employee wellness approach focusing on mental, physical and financial wellness.

All in all, in 2023, HR will focus on various aspects of wellness, starting with its own.
