While professionals often prioritised progression, culture and being in a company that respected them, this could change. Anxiety around cost of living is a big topic right now. You are probably seeing this with your current team already. So, keeping up with the competitive salaries will be an absolute must.

Help your team maintain their work-life balance

The past few years have been great for people trying to find a balance between work and play. Remote working has definitely allowed this. There could be some challenges for this in 2023. There are many people considering a full time return to the office, due to rising costs. It doesn’t necessarily mean they want to. Now would be a great time to look into your culture and how you help employees maintain a work-life balance. Can you support their remote working setup in any way?

Offering candidates what they want

We have already predicted that salary will be important to people in 2023. While it is not in the top 3 essentials in our 2022 report, we have a feeling it will rise up the ranks. In 2022, working from home was the top essential for candidates. Opportunity to progress and flexible hours were also in the top 3. This all comes together to show us that the main thing people want is security and stability. In times of uncertainty, this is the best thing you can offer candidates.
