In this article, experts at VC ERP Consulting talk about effectively combating the top 4 challenges of HR in 2023 and how SAP SuccessFactors can overcome those burning HR challenges.

1.  Lack of Employee Engagement

As and how people are returning to work in offices, workforce engagement has become a rising concern for HR professionals. Engagement metrics were going upward in the early part of the pandemic when people were working from home, driven by an increased transparency and communication but those gains are hard to hold on to as people are returning to work.

2.  Poor Talent Acquisition

Talent acquisition is the highest challenge that HR is going to face this year. In the era of Great Resignation, many organizations across the world are finding it difficult to fill their open roles in a timely fashion.

Competitive compensation and additional employee benefits are the key aspects to attract fresh talent in your organization. However, in order to really compete, you need to offer out-of-the-box meaningful employee experiences and a greater sense of purpose to your employees.

In 2023, workplace relationships are becoming more important than ever. Strengthening employee relationships is one of the many challenges faced by HR this year. Employees are settling into long-term remote working models and that is affecting the way employees interact with each other.

In these kinds of work environments, employees are intentional about building relationships. Lack of regular communication leads to weak employee relationships. On the other hand, healthy work relationships help you to build trust and lead to a sustainable workforce.
