Projecoach.cz shares TOP#5 predictions and trends we expect to happen during the year 2022, so let's check them.
1. Challenges not only for coaches: Understanding a New Generation of Workers and “Big Quit”
In 2022 organizations will fight to attract & retain talented, effects of “Big Quit” and New Generation Z phenomena. All mentioned can be strongly influenced by coaching.
The American “Big Quit,” or “Great Resignation” is a post-widespread-vaccination phenomenon that is touching everyone from McDonalds workers to software engineers. A record 4 million people quit their jobs in April 2021, many of them in low-paid, inflexible industries like retail. The same thing is starting to happen in higher paid jobs. The recorded impact is not only in US, but Europe or China. Much of the layoffs and resignations were driven by women, who disproportionately work in industries that were affected most by the lockdowns, like service industries and childcare. Only in US since April 2021 more than 20 million people have left their jobs in what’s being called the “Big Quit”.

Some organizations are focusing on addressing the skills gap. It’s predicted that 40% of workers will require up to six months of reskilling by 2025.

Companies will soon discover that these younger workers have a different set of ideas and priorities for their professional careers.
For example, younger workers expect to have flexible schedules, even if they’re not working 100% remotely.
The recommendations for coaches IN 2022
Coaches have the opportunity to address employee motivation, the impact on changing the work environment and work habits. Working with priorities. Searching for the meaning of life. Furthermore, how to involve the new generation and diversification of the young and senior generation.
2. A Digital Mindset and digitization of coaching will be in the top coaching trends
Converge21: „There is no digital disruption, just digital delivery“ Collaboration tools are a given, but we’ll see other technologies emerge as well. For example, over 80% of organizations will adopt cloud-based room systems by 2022. Businesses will also offer tools for when staff goes into the office, for example, apps that support contact traci
