Job Trends for 2023
The 2023 is approaching fast. You should be prepared for it, also in terms of your professional life. What solutions will be popular? Read on.
Remote or hybrid work
Remote work took off at a larger scale in 2020. In theory, it was supposed to be a temporary solution. In practice, it is here to stay.
Current data indicate that opinions on remote work are divided. It has both it’s proponents, as well as stark opponents. A definite advantage is no need to commute (time and cost saving) and higher comfort of work. The apparent weaknesses – the lack of face to face contact, and quite often lower levels of concentration. It doesn’t change the fact that remote work is still an attractive benefit, which will remain quite important in 2023.
Remote work doesn’t necessarily mean working from home – not everyone has the means for it. Some prefer to use coworking spaces that fit their needs. It’s a very convenient solution. Going out to work and a change in surroundings make us more organized an focused – says Marta Kamińska from Solutions.Rent

Flexible working hours
Flexible working hours, in professions that allow for them, are becoming increasingly more popular. It results from the fact that people want to better match their professional lives to their private ones. Some prefer working late in the evening, while others love to get to work as early in the morning as possible, and they are most productive between 8 and 11 in the morning. Moreover, a 4-day workweek has become an increasingly discussed topic in Poland. It means an extra free day (usually Friday), and doing the same work on the remaining four days for the same pay. Changes in this area would let employees take better care of their well-being and work-life balance.
In recent years there has been more and more talk about professional burnout and overworking. Undoubtedly this area has been affected by the pandemic, a sudden change in the course of work to home office, or the current economic conditions. It’s hardly a secret that the employee needs to be well rested and satisfied to be able to carry out their duties with engagement. Leaders and managers play an important role here.
The aforementioned flexible working hours seem to be a right solution here. It is important to provide employees with an appropriate support. Paid psychotherapy, coaching or a career advisor meetings are among the solutions that an increasing number of companies decide to implement.
Artificial intelligence can already conduct simple conversations, create images and graphics and even write sales pitches. Its capabilities are sure to be further developed in the coming years. Employees should be prepared for that.
Artificial intelligence doesn’t have to be a threat, though. Automation, delegation of routine tasks, assistance in everyday duties are but a few of advantages it can provide. In 2023, employees will need to adapt new technologies to their work, so that it becomes easier than ever.
Some of these trends had appeared in previous years already. In 2023, we will be able to watch them develop and see if they remain attractive, or maybe they will become less popular.
