Like any industry, the business world has its own trends. So, which are the big things to look out for in 2023?
1. Faster digital adoption
The speed of digital adoption is accelerating. The advent of technologies such as ChatGPT and other AI applications promises to help businesses run slicker, more efficient operations with greater productivity and customer insight. This trend will continue to grow as technologies evolve and become more widely adopted.
2. Supply chain security
The Covid pandemic, when factories closed and supply chains were disrupted, has left businesses more eager to secure their supply chains and more likely to enter into tight arrangements with partners and suppliers
3. Access to finance
Cheltenham accountants are seeing a real uptick in clients looking for flexible finance arrangements that allow them to take advantage of credit when they need it. This will continue to be a trend, especially if the cost environment continues to be challenging and inflation continues to be high, driving interest rates upwards.

4. Talent sourcing
The quest to secure talent will continue to be paramount for forward-thinking businesses who will strive to engage the right candidates by creating strong employer brands and increasingly sophisticated recruitment strategies. They will also increasingly focus on retaining talent.
This will continue to be a huge drive for businesses, along with cause-related marketing and environmental strategies. Customers want to spend their money with sustainable businesses that have strong values. Those businesses that have powerful green, sustainable and ethical business strategies will continue to thrive.
6. Immersive customer experiences
Customers want excellent experiences and businesses will go out of their way to deliver them, using technologies such as AI and VR to bring those experiences to life. They will also enhance their service measures to place customers at the heart of their business.
Expect to see these trends gain even greater traction as we move into the second half of 2023 and then into the coming year, where they will still be powerful drivers for businesses across the UK.
