COVID-19 as innovation driver: Making HR fit for the future (Part 3 of 3)
The radical shift of many companies towards remote work triggered by COVID-19 poses an immense challenge for HR organizations because emerging forms of work must be sustained by a sufficient IT infrastructure. From remote recruiting to new company agreements to changed performance management, the pressure to act is palpable.
