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

It’s a vicious circle: While HR professionals spend a lot of their time in bulky Excel spreadsheets, they have to do quite a different job. The changing world of work is in full swing, and in most areas, routine work is done by the computer.… Continue

New work – the work of the future

Globalization, work migration and technologisation – topics which substantially shape todays job market and raise significant questions: How does tomorrow’s job market look like? Where and, in particular, when will we work? How will we communicate? And what hierarchies will be in place? How much importance will work play in a person’s life, and above all, why and what do we work for?

Terms like self-responsibility, self-reflexion, self-realisation, freedom and community thinking, virtual collaboration, augmented reality and crowd innovation will steadily gain more importance.

Big Data – (R) evolution of Talent Management?


“Big Brother is watching you.” – this is often said when talking about Big Data.

Especially in talent management there are new possibilities emerging. You will find out what these are, where they are already used and what impact they have on human resource management, all in the second part of a small series on the subject: Big Data.
