Technological developments, such as automation and robotisation, have a drastic impact on work processes and the job market. This is one of the findings of the HR Trends 2018-2019, the largest survey conducted among HR professionals by Berenschot in cooperation with Performa and Talentsoft.
Yesterday, the Dutch Intelligence and Security Services Act referendum marked a first for the Municipality of Groningen: at five polling stations, rather than counting the votes by hand, they were counted using a blockchain application. The council worked on this project with Berenschot consultants and LAB15 technology partners. The turnout could be followed in real-time and when voting closed, it was compared with the number of votes counted.
Employees are remarkably positive about working in the technological sector. Approximately 83% of employees see digitisation and robotisation as a promising opportunity and encourage these developments. They feel that technology makes their work more challenging and fun. Employees enjoy learning and have a need for professional training and information.
