Managers expect digitization to result in more jobs
About two thirds of managers in Germany see digitization as a job generator rather than a job killer. Whereas the demand for financial management and IT security specialists is on the rise, there is a shortage of suitable applicants.28 Feb 2020 Kai Tubbesing
According to a recent labor market study by the personnel service provider Robert Half, 64% of the CFOs, CIOs and other managers surveyed expect the digital transformation to create more jobs in their companies than it eliminates. In view of the increasing shortage of skilled workers , however, they are not sure they will be able to fill these new and open positions. According to the respondents, there is a particular lack of applicants for financial management (32%), financial planning (31%) and business analysis (30%) positions.
The IT sector does not look any better either: 41% of CIOs say that filling IT security positions is the biggest challenge, followed by the search for specialists in general digitization (26%) and cloud technologies (22%). According to their own statements, managers are increasingly promoting digitization because they themselves have had positive experiences with the new technologies: 73% mention positive effects on their own work, especially in terms of more personal productivity (41%).
