The Impact of the Digital Economy on the Skill Set of High Potentials

Hiring outstanding employees is the goal of every company. Digitalization impacted the way companies work and the environment they are surrounded by. Considering this change, employees are facing new challenges for which a concrete skill set is needed. By conducting qualitative interviews, a distinct skill set required by companies was identified. The outcome is that soft skills moved to the forefront, playing a major role when coping with the digital future. In a further step, recommendations for talent management regarding recruitment and development of high potentials are given. With the implementation of technology and the adaption to the human resources perspective, companies will be able to master digital transformation.
