As the year winds down, people are looking ahead to 2023 and what their goals for the coming year will be. Half of Americans are tired of making the same New Year’s resolutions (49%) and want to try a professional resolution next year, like getting a new job or a promotion (50%), according to new research.
A new survey of 2-thousand Americans finds:
- A quarter (22%) are unhappy with their professional lives and many are ready to make some changes.
- Over a third of respondents (37%) say they feel behind on their career goals, especially millennials (51%).
- As a result, 56% say they’re looking to strengthen their professional life in 2023.
- During the last year, a quarter of those polled have improved their work-life balance, 22% have updated their resume and 21% have expanded their skillset.
- Nearly three-quarters (72%) of millennials say they’re determined to make professional resolutions, and their top priorities include improving work-life balance (34%) and making new connections (33%).
- Gen Z respondents are focusing on growing their skillset and furthering their education in the coming year (29% each.)
- A third of those polled say learning the skill set of their current job now would be harder than it was when they were hired (34%) and one in eight admit they don’t know if they’d get hired at their job today.
- To help them stick to their goals for 2023, people plan to find ways to stay motivated (49%), maintain a positive mindset (48%) and hold themselves accountable (41%).
