Turn HR into a Driver of Digital Transformation
We are experiencing rapid change in the working world. Remote work is replacing traditional office work, online collaboration is making conference rooms obsolete, and agile, flat organizational concepts are challenging rigid hierarchies. This presents HR departments with a great opportunity to redefine itself as a strategic partner for fostering new, modern ways of working.
Cutting-edge cloud-based HR tools empower the HR department to become a key driver of digital transformation in the company.
New working models such as mobile and home-office work are trending
Two examples illustrate how quickly and radically companies have been responding to recent challenges: According to current plans, Google’s entire workforce of roughly 200,000 employees will continue to work out of their homes until July 2021. Siemens’ “New Normal Working Model” is designed to provide 140,000 employees with a more flexible, mobile way of working.
The future of work necessitates fully digitized personnel management
The new world of work is causing epochal change in the business arena. HR departments should seize this opportunity and become enablers of the future of work. However, this step towards “Work 4.0” can only succeed if the HR department itself is comprehensively digitized.
