Gartner's workplace predictions for 2023 include the concept of "quiet hiring," a strategy aimed at acquiring new skills within an organization without resorting to traditional external hiring processes. This approach involves upskilling current employees, expanding their responsibilities, or engaging temporary workers for specific assignments. While it can be a mutually beneficial arrangement—employees gain new skills and potential salary increases, and companies enhance their workforce's capabilities—there are concerns about potential misuse.
