New Ways to Digitalise Your Workforce

Hosted by: Bertelsmann

In the face of digital transformation, HR leaders are turning their attention to building internal capability instead of relying too heavily on external support. In particular, HR has the potential to be the driver of innovative learning tools such as ‘nano-degrees’ in building digital capability. ChapmanCG’s Frieder Rummel speaks with Dr Hays Steilberg, Executive Vice President Corporate HR, Executives and Talent at Bertelsmann SE & Co. KGaA, about innovative models for learning and capacity building.
