How will companies become fit for the future world of work? The challenges of the revolutionary world of work can hardly be mastered without expert advice. How companies grow and operate successfully.

The future of work is dynamic, agile and digital. Innovative technologies offer a huge potential for growth. Digitization also changes the way work is organized. HR plays a key role in this. For example, HR must proactively accompany the digital transformation process in the company and change itself at the same time. To master this change and guarantee entrepreneurial growth, technical expertise and support are required.

Startups have to learn to grow in a structured way – and established companies should try to integrate innovative technologies and the spirit of an agile startup.

Digital HR tools generally lead to greater efficiency. However, its implementation is not enough. Based on our years of experience, we have identified three critical points with which HR digitization stands or falls.

  • In our view, the first step is always an assessment of added value – beyond the mere cost savings.
  • The second important point is the selection of employees in the project phase. We even developed our own assessment for the selection of the right actors.
  • The third point is the answer to the question of how new, digital HR is changing the company.

HR cloud systems – About the digitalization of HR management and its challenges.

The new, cloud-based HR systems reach far into every corner of the company and thus become management systems with HR content, to which every employee and every manager also has access – of course limited within the framework of authorization competence.

In order to develop and establish a suitable HR architecture that is helpful in daily, recurring processes and saves a lot of time, it is necessary to clarify various questions about the HR strategy and the HR business model in advance.
