At the end of 2021, SIOP members identified a list of the expected and predicted 2022 Top 10 Work Trends. The identified trends were multifaced and complex, some had their origin from the distress of a global pandemic and critical social issues in 2020.

In February 2022, we introduced the Trend Champions selected to monitor the latest developments in research and practice on each of these trends throughout the year. After the first quarter of 2022, the Q1 Round-ups were shared. During the 2022 SIOP Annual Conference, many of the Top 10 Work Trends were discussed and insights were shared, reviewed, and discussed in the Q2 Round-ups. The Q3 Round-ups were shared in September 2022.
