Global payroll and compliance platform for international teams, Deel, has the answer with the top remote and hybrid work trends it forecasts for the new year, drawn from its deep insights as a global hiring platform with over 100,000 employees and contractors using its platform.

FREMONT, CA: The pandemic has absolutely transformed the workforce. Many employers now accept—even adopt—remote and hybrid workplace models. As 2023 approaches, business leaders must pay attention to the most anticipated workplace trends.


Utilising asynchronous tools and flexible work schedules, remote employees are using the system to manage many jobs simultaneously. Work and more salary are their only priorities for those over-employed people.

The Rise of the Chief Remote Officer

The position of CRO is becoming more common on job boards worldwide as remote work becomes more prevalent. Most job descriptions cover every aspect of remote team setups, including hosting in-person events, working across time zones, compensation plans, and internal communications technologies.


It has indeed become a reality and, more often than not, the standard. Individuals may know work from beautiful Maldivian cottages on the water and from their couches to new technologies.

Flex Holidays

Teams are embracing the concept of flexible holidays as more businesses use remote work because not everyone observes Thanksgiving. More employees are free to choose their vacation days rather than being bound by a fixed timetable. Global teams are, after all, just that global.

Gen Flex

The most recent generation to enter the workforce is going through an experience like no other in recent memory. It has never even entered an office for employment, unlike some who entered amid a recession or epidemic.


Today's workforce prioritises independence and flexibility as their top necessities (and life). Teams are sacrificing benefits more often than ever in exchange for the necessity of being a Flexetariat.

Talent Snatching - Another Day, Another Offer Letter

One intriguing tendency is emerging amidst the ongoing layoffs. Some employees find that they can only stay with a company for a few months before receiving an unexpectedly better offer elsewhere. Although talent snatching might be strenuous, competing offers undoubtedly have advantages.

Sukima - Extra Time is Extra Money

Sukima is something that young people in Japan are enjoying. With new apps like Jobcase, Time, and LINE Sukhmani that help link them with occupations like waiting tables or deliveries, they are turning spare time into extra money. This prevents time from being spent and instead allows them to make money.

Pick-up Parties - There’s a New Type of Tupperware Party in Town

Pick-up parties are in-person brand events where people may connect as fewer people are working from offices and spending less time together IRL. They place an order for a product, but rather than having it delivered to the house, and they pick it up at a live party event where they may mingle with other customers who share their interests.

Career Bouncing

Moving from one career to another, such as becoming a marketer from a teacher, to determine which is preferable, is slightly different from income bouncing hopping from job to job in less than a year to boost salary with each move.


People are saving more money than ever because of decreased travel, lower food costs, and higher earnings. More than 59 per cent of those who work from home claim to have raised their salaries, and 64 per cent claim to have grown their savings.

Over the past few years, work has changed dramatically due to the pandemic, ongoing skills shortages, and widespread acceptance of remote and flexible working styles. As a result, they are seeing new trends, such as the emergence of the Chief Remote Officer and a rising appetite among workers for a Workcation.
