Changing economic conditions or spontaneously occurring crises, such as the current coronavirus pandemic, can suddenly cause many things to shift. Before you know it, working from home and new forms of collaboration, along with new IT applications, platforms and other digitalization issues, are part of everyday life at a company and within HR departments. And because things have to happen quickly in order for operations to continue without interruption, ad hoc solutions are sometimes of the essence.
The structural transformation of the workplace is gaining momentum around the world and heralding a new era of work organization, even independently of such events. New technologies, globalization and demographic change are dramatically changing the world of work. These factors are accompanied by rapidly evolving new working requirements, which companies always need to be on top of in order to remain competitive.
