Looking Back to Plan Ahead

We dove deep into BambooHR usage data to pinpoint what was at the forefront of HR in 2022.

It’s been a rocky road, but our customers rose to the challenge and emerged as HR rockstars in 2022. According to BambooHR usage data, they got serious about guiding the employee experience and getting strategic with their HR data, with the following trends taking shape as they gear up to tackle 2023 head on.

Shifting Toward a People-First Culture

What This Means: HR Wants to Amplify Employee Voices and Employee Experience

If 2021 was the year of the Great Resignation, 2022 seems to have been the year of Finding Out Why It Happened. We witnessed a deliberate shift toward a people-first, communication-driven culture with a joint focus on listening more and serving employees better. Twenty-five percent (+25.5%) more time off requests were processed compared to last year. Thirty-two percent (+32.52%) more employees were enrolled in an increasing variety of benefits. And with 758,463 total pulse surveys completed, our customers amplified employee voices more than ever with our newly expanded employee experience pulse surveys.

What can you do to prepare for 2023?

  • Keep pushing to discover what really motivates employees. Get a jumpstart on your research by reviewing our 2022 Compensation Trends Report.
  • Seek feedback straight from your own employees, and use reliable, research-backed tools like Employee Satisfaction to measure employee sentiment and track it throughout the year—and beyond.
  • Enrich your understanding of the employee experience with a deeper, multifaceted exploration of what takes employees from “satisfied” to “engaged.” We launched our own Employee Wellbeing survey tool this year for just this purpose.

With the right tools, anything’s possible.

This year, our users honed in on first impressions, with a 20 percent increase in completed new hire packets.
