The digital transformation accelerates the ongoing upheaval in personnel work. However, new organizational concepts and the digitalization of HR are not an end in themselves: the decisive factor is whether they make a greater value contribution to corporate success. Recent studies show that most companies are implementing a digital HR strategy. At the same time, less than half of the managers surveyed consider themselves sufficiently equipped for this. Digitalisation opens up additional opportunities, but also puts pressure on HR departments. On the one hand, they need to optimize their own processes through the use of digital technologies. On the other hand, HR departments are expected to enable and actively shape the implementation of digital business models and the transformation of the company as a whole. The strategy summit offers a plenary session for an interim conclusion. On the basis of experience reports and innovative concepts, the status and perspectives of digital transformation in the HR sector will be outlined so that participants can take suggestions for their own practice with them.
