Top 10 Work Trends: 2023 Q1 Round-Ups from Trend Champions

Building on the identified Top 10 Work Trends and kicking off for the year 2023, our Trend Champions curated several of the highlights in our 2023 Q1 Round-Ups. You will find several remarkable observations, among others: more specific advice like sharing dishes to serve creativity and organizational culture in Trend 3, or more generic overviews like a model with triciprocal relationship between work, family, and community in Trend 10, a critical note on window-dressing or inclusion façades versus deep-level inclusion in Trend 4, ‘feelings’ of ineffectiveness of pajama workers in Trend 1, the link between ChatGPT and psychological safety in Trend 8, and the shared concerns about uncertainty and layoffs across several trends.

Background of the Top 10 Work Trends 2023
At the end of 2022, SIOP members identified a list of the expected and predicted 2023 Top 10 Work Trends. Although the identified trends were multifaced and complex, some are more focused and have their origin from the distress of a global pandemic and critical social issues in 2020 or are linked to fears of a recession, inflation, or unexpected lay offs at the turn of 2022-2023. These dynamics linger on during 2023 in media, research, and practice. The trends, identified by SIOP members, who are experts in applied science at work, were announced at the beginning of March. Next, we introduced the Trend Champions selected to monitor the latest developments in research and practice on each of these trends throughout the year. And after the first quarter of 2023, we share the Q1 Round-ups. During the SIOP Annual Conference in April, many of the Top 10 Work Trends will be discussed, and recent insights will be shared, which will be reviewed and discussed in the Q2 Round-ups. But first the 2023 Q1 Round-ups
