Results of qualitative survey: “People in the workplace 4.0”

In the second part of the study, we carried out an in-depth evaluation of the qualitative interviews with professionals in HR, management, staff development and technology.

The results show that the interviewees see digitalisation as a catalyst for their professional career development. However, in their view, the increasing speed of change leads to uncertainty, especially among staff. During this transformation process, therefore, employees should also receive support on an emotional level.
