Progressive digitalization and automation are leading to a profound change in the current working world. This development implies, on the one hand, a massive loss of jobs and, on the other hand, the emergence of completely new fields of activity, which poses new challenges for employers and employees. In order to secure their jobs, employees are required to qualify themselves in new fields of activity. In addition, employers must gear their human resources work toward actively accompanying this transformation.

The conference "The Impact of Digital Transformation on the World of Work", which took place on June 18/19, 2020, dealt intensively with this current problem. Discussions focused particularly on the digitalization of jobs in various industries, human resources tools, as well as leadership and collaboration, all of which are summarized in this conference volume.
