The key trends in HR for 2023

And how GFoundry can help prepare for what is coming

As a new year begins, and we enter a new phase of the pandemic that has affected all kinds of businesses in recent years, there comes a time to look at what may lie ahead.

In this type of period, when we are at the beginning of a new cycle, both in terms of calendar, society and way of working, it is frequent to share opinion articles on various topics, written by various specialists from different areas.

At GFoundry we are constantly aware of the trends described by specialists, namely those that are directly related to Talent Management in organisations – a subject that is part of our genesis.

That is why we have put together a set of the most mentioned trends described by experts in the field for 2023.

1. A more hybrid workplace

It is inevitable to state that hybrid working models are here to stay.

Despite being a trend already identified by many pre-pandemic studies, the truth is that remote work obligations have accelerated the process.

According to an Accenture study, 83% of employees prefer to have a hybrid working model, in which there is a balance between the use of the office and each employee’s choice of where they prefer to work (Accenture, 2021).

This trend brings challenges to any organisation, especially when it comes to managing their teams remotely. Therefore, it becomes essential to define agile communication channels and processes that allow any employee and manager to keep in touch, and ensure that all tasks are fulfilled.

For this, the use of a platform like GFoundry becomes crucial! Besides allowing a simpler internal communication, through push notifications and news, it also allows, in a very agile way, to manage all the training, the employees’ goals through the OKR (Objective-Key Results) methodology, and also to create and manage processes a little more complex such as Onboarding, Performance and Potential Evaluation, Recognition and Feedback programs, among others.

2. Digital Skills in the Top 10 Essential Skills

If there is one thing that the pandemic has taught us abruptly, it is that nowadays it is extremely necessary to know how to work with digital tools.

Even though there are processes that are inevitably physical, most of today’s functions are linked to digital platforms.

As companies’ technology structures expand, employees are required to learn, very quickly, how to interact with these platforms and how to use them to perform their jobs – which is not always an easy task.

However, a platform like GFoundry can help in this process. Our solution can work as an aggregator of all existing platforms in the organisation. Get to know more here.

With information centralised at a single digital address, it becomes considerably easier for employees to access the entire technology structure of the organisation in one place – without complications.

3. Employee well-being as a priority

Since the most critical pandemic period, the well-being of employees has become a very strong concern for managers.

Even with the gradual return to normality, it is indisputable that investment in the well-being of teams has shown positive results in the performance of organisations.

According to a Gartner study, 94% of companies interviewed have made significant investments in wellness programmes for their employees.

To facilitate the creation of these programmes, GFoundry can be a powerful tool. Through the Learn Module, you can make wellness content available to your employees on a frequent basis!

You can also create initiatives (with or without reward mechanisms) that promote interaction between peers related to the promotion of healthy living habits, the promotion of regular exercise and healthy eating, social projects to raise funds for causes, among many others.

In addition, the GFoundry platform also has free Curated Content made available to all customers, with wellbeing categories available to use and share with employees.
