HR Predictions 2023

The role of HR is evolving rapidly. From managing hiring challenges to combating "quiet quitting," companies and employees are placing new demands and expectations on HR leaders, requiring new skills and an agile approach to work.

Let's look at one specific area small businesses should be paying attention to - inflation's influence on employee retention. 

Long story short, it's going to get even more expensive to live. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, inflation was around 2%, and right now we are around 8.3%. 

Now, that might not seem much of a difference, but your employee's financial picture will become increasingly uncomfortable as the cost of living keeps rising. You don't want your best and brightest employees leaving to find another job, so you might need to adjust to support them.

In this case, the best employee retention strategy from an HR standpoint is to consider bonuses, raises, and other types of compensation for top-performing employees. The best approach depends mainly on context; you might be proactive about raising their pay or wait for them to bring up the conversation about compensation. 

The bottom line is that with the economic volatility we're experiencing right now - unless you're an employer of choice - you're at risk of losing your best talent. So, creating an effective employee retention strategy is the best way to navigate the current financial landscape.
