2023 will be a defining year as ambitious transformation plans and persistent challenges come face-to-face with new realities. HR will need to maintain energy and momentum to ready itself and the business for what lies ahead.


In the 2023 Global Talent Trends study, we asked nearly 2,500 HR leaders around the world what’s top of mind for them this year.


Top HR priorities for 2023

  • Enhancing the Employee Experience for key retention populations
  • Improving workforce planning to better inform buy/build/borrow strategies
  • Designing talent processes around skills
  • Rethinking compensation philosophy and practices
  • Improving Total Reward packages

Relatable organizations will win out in changing times

Leading organizations are redefining how they interact with their workforce and contribute to society, seeking to become more resilient, sustainable and attuned to the new shape of work.


Our research shows that Relatable Organizations have five things in common: They are constantly resetting for relevance, figuring out new ways to work in partnership, delivering on total well-being outcomes, building for employability, and harnessing collective energy to drive transformative change. Even in the face of sociopolitical and economic uncertainty, these priorities must remain front and center for organizations and individuals to thrive.


What’s getting in the way?

Employee exhaustion is perceived as one of the biggest obstacles to transformation in 2023.


What else are HR leaders concerned about as they ready their organizations for the challenges ahead?


  • Too many priorities that distract our people (44%)
  • Balancing transformation plans with a survival mindset (35%)
  • An impoverished budget (35%)
