HR Effectiveness

This article provides an excerpt from i4cp’s recently released 42-page report, 2023 Priorities and Predictions report (requires download directly from i4cp’s site). The detailed report is based on insights from i4cp’s six boards—Chief HR Officers, Chief Diversity Officers, Chief Learning & Talent Officers, Heads of Talent Acquisition, People Analytics, and Total Rewards—comprising senior executives who collaborate on “next practices” for the six respective areas. The four priorities top of mind in 2023 for the CHRO members are: 

  1. Staying on the talent offensive and ensuring tight alignment to organizational strategy
  2. Refocusing the employee value proposition and reinforcing it via a continually renovated culture
  3. Avoiding burnout while also building and strengthening HR’s strategic capability
  4. Building and rewarding ambidextrous leaders

You can download the referenced reports in the article for more information. In case you missed it, here is my one-page summary of 2023 workforce trends and HR priorities, according to seven sources. My sharing of these different reports on trends and priorities does not suggest that the mentioned trends are or should be a priority for every organization; it is simply intended to provide insights into what various sources are highlighting. HR and talent leaders can use these resources as references as they determine the vital few priorities for their organization.
