In this article, we glance into the future and discuss potential workplace trends for interims in 2023.
A four-day working week was recently trialled in the UK whereby 70 companies paid their employees 100% of their salary for 80% of normal working hours. Although the results of the study are yet to be published, it is expected that this will become the norm for a lot of companies in the new year.
The government also recently passed a legislation which gives employers the right to ask for flexible working upon starting a new job.
More opportunities overseas
According to Forbes, there has been a 7% increase in interim roles across Europe between 2021 and 2022. France takes the crown, having seen a 21% rise in interim roles in January alone. This spike could mean more opportunities for interim professionals to work abroad. At the very least, it is clear that this market is getting more and more traction so your projects shouldn’t be in short supply next year!
Improved mental health support
Although the focus on mental health in the workplace has improved significantly over the past few years, there is still a long way to go. Access to relevant resources is particularly important for those in remote roles, as we all know that lack of face to face interaction can lead to feelings of isolation, depression and a decrease in motivation. It is expected that more prominence will be placed on the importance of mental health, and that companies will spend more time and money on providing support to those who need it.
Uncertainty around IR35
Although reforms to IR35 were revoked by ex-Chancellor, Kwasi Kwarten, it is likely there will still be further uncertainty around IR35 rules – but don’t worry, we’ll keep you posted!
Imperium Resourcing looks forward to welcoming in the new year and sends its best wishes to all contractors for what is shaping up to be a year full of opportunities and positive change.
