Greetings from Mercer!


2023 will be a complicated year for businesses as it faces both completely new and strangely familiar risks. Organizations find no respite from the rising inflation and the high interest rates, energy crisis, geo-political issues and funding winter, compelling them to continue undergoing improbable amount of changes from past years. Organizations would need to be resilient, relevant, and ready for unprecedented adversities to stay stronger together giving way for creation of newer ecosystems for them to thrive.


For the workforce, 2023 has started off with jitters as many tech giants have announced massive layoffs on account of future growth corrections and corresponding rushed hiring. Corporate leaders will continue to face a war for talent as baby boomers retire and businesses adapt not only to the “most” generation – Gen Z but to Gen AI as well. Upskilling and reskilling would be further intense for both employees and employers to remain relevant.


Global and corporate leaders at the 2023 World Economic Forum Annual Meeting taking place in Davos exchanged views on variety of topics ranging from Economy, Ukraine-Russia war, Trade, Climate, Future of Work etc. – all with a focus on how to tackle the biggest challenges of 2023.


The 2023 WEF provided hope that it’s not that bad as it is perceived. It may be another difficult year, but also, a beginning to rediscover ourselves as an organization and as an individual. As they say, when the going gets tough, the toughest gets going.
