how salaries and benefits are shifting in 2022.

normalization of flexible work

This is one of the most significant changes of the past year or two: flexible work is now the standard in many industries. There is a normalization of employees wanting their workplaces to be flexible and have the option to work from home at least part-time. Over 81% of employees who work remotely said that they were currently happy with their working situation. For employers, the message is clear that flexible work is here to stay. While not everyone can or wants to work 100% remotely, hybrid work situations that allow workers to split their time between in-office and remote work will be a significant trend in 2022.

strong salary growth

With the economy recovering from the COVID-19 pandemic, salaries are likely to increase across all industries. Wages tend to rise over time due to inflation, but inflation along with the pandemic and the labour shortage — companies will likely see those numbers surge upwards. So heading into 2022, employers of all sizes must conduct salary benchmarking analysis. If your salary isn’t competitive, you may have trouble hiring new employees in 2022.

focus on retention

A significant focus for many companies in 2022 will be on retention. It will be hard to find new employees in a labour shortage, so you’ll want to make sure that you’re retaining the excellent talent you’ve already managed to hire. Plus, Keeping your existing employees is less expensive than replacing them. So when you need to focus your financial resources on offering competitive compensation, you certainly want to avoid any unnecessary costs related to turnover.
