It’s hard to believe that 2022 is already knocking on our doors, but in just mere days it will be here. With the last couple of years showing drastic changes in the workforce, many hiring and employment trends should continue and even accelerate as we enter the new year. Here are what experts are saying you can expect to see in your workplace over the coming year.
Resignations Should Continue to Rise in the Workplace
One trend that is likely to continue is the rise of workplace resignations. Worker resignations are creating shortages and many experts expect to see a great increase of employee power. Employees will likely start to require more incentives in order to be employed. This includes better pay, better benefits, better work-life balance, and more in order to retain and attract new employees.
Healthcare Positions Will Continue to Be in High Demand
It is likely we will see a trend in hiring for healthcare professionals, healthcare supporting fields, and construction as many of these positions opened up as a result of the pandemic. This will allow for less competition in these fields and better opportunities to negotiate benefits and salary.
Remote Work is Here to Stay
We will also likely see an increase and continuation of remote employment in certain industries, some even moving to more permanent remote positions with the ability to hire anyone from anywhere.
Firms Will Be Under Pressure to Stay Competitive for Good Employees
For the most part, this has been a beneficial time for many employees searching for new positions and many are starting to recognize that they may be undervalued in their current roles. Higher demand and increasing pay-rates have lead many to seek positions that provide an increase in pay and benefits. While a boon to workers with in-demand skills, this trend has put pressure on firms looking to hire and retain good employees. Look for this trend to continue throughout 2022.
