A study by Kienbaum proves: HR needs more time. Instead of being able to work strategically, HR professionals spend a large part of their day on administrative tasks. More than 39 percent of HR processes in German HR departments are attributable to administrative duties. Here, employee self-service portals and digital processes could bring enormous relief.
HR lacks the time to set the course for Industry 4.0
