This year will be a sensitive one for hiring skilled resources, says 2021 HubSpot research survey. It has revealed that about 19% of marketers would face difficulties selecting the right candidate in 2022.
The HubSpot Blog Research survey revealed that marketers’ most prominent challenge is training their team. While large organizations often have a fully-fledged infrastructure for employee training, comparatively smaller businesses struggle in this aspect.
A study revealed that about 11% of workers had not received any formal workplace training, while 30% say they haven’t done it in the last five years. This also leads to more significant issues relating to performance, career development, and of course, job satisfaction. About 21% of marketers still anticipate training and ROI measuring as significant challenges for 2022.

Like marketing roles, companies were forced to make hard pivots in their marketing strategy, and they also needed strong marketing operations muscle to do it, but it was very encouraging to see marketing operations come out of the woodwork. 2022 will bring the following changes in the area of marketing operations:
A rise in VP, director-level marketing ops roles
Marketing operations leadership roles tend to be more significant in startups but in 2022, along with changes in the perception of marketing ops, established companies are expected to bring on marketing operations leaders to oversee this vital function. According to a 2021 survey by BrandMaker, CMOs’ top priority is better tech stack integration, a critical responsibility of the marketing ops function. In 2022 more companies are expected to bring on marketing ops leadership as the need for marketing tech management skyrockets.
Digital marketing has been added to the curriculum very recently. A quick internet search on marketing operations training shows results a few from an accredited business degree program. There has been a dismal lack of education around marketing operations as an overall function, which will soon change in 2022.
Marketing ops to take over advertising ops
Statista revealed that global digital advertising spending will rise to USD645.8 billion in 2025. This established function seems to be merged with marketing operations, as advertising ops professionals begin pushing to exert more influence on the business and marketers start seeing how advertising operations fit into the overall marketing organization.
marketing ops to own account-based marketing
account-based marketing has seen a steep rise and a sudden plateau for many organizations. Google trends search volume revealed that in August 2021, search volume for ABM peaked, and in November, it was halved in volume. Rather than hiring ABM leaders, marketing teams will soon see that marketing operations can smartly fit ABM as one of the many strategies marketing employs throughout the year. In addition, marketing ops has the data and Martech ownership that can bring ABM to life.
