Future Work

The globalisation of the labour market, demographic change and, above all, new technologies are changing our traditional working habits for example in terms of working models, places of work and working hours. This change is affecting employees and employers alike. The common understanding of an employment relationship is increasingly becoming more like a partnership. As a result, new opportunities are developing that offer potential on both sides. Company processes and organisational structures are undergoing fundamental changes: hybrid or technology-enhanced work processes as well as networks, even across company borders, are increasing effectiveness and creating new, innovative forms of cooperation.

Modern Working Environments

The use of technology is fundamentally changing working environments. Technology is increasingly piercing the traditional organisational structures - more focus is being put on knowledge work. The labour market is becoming a demand market, combined with the desire for greater flexibility and independence. The collaboration between freelance and permanent employees, flexible working time models and the associated remuneration and participation programmes must be shaped accordingly. >>

Innovative Types of Work Organisation

New forms of collaboration have put an end to the age of Command & Control. Agile forms of project management or self-management, such as Scrum, Kanban or Design Thinking, are setting the course for new working environments. Outsourced innovation hubs are accelerating processes, however, at the same time they carry the risk of losing relevant employees. Traditional management structures and role and responsibility models need to be rethought and made as legally secure as possible. >>

Digital Workplace

Digital technologies help make processes more efficient and transparent. Cost cutting and increased efficiency are being driven forward taking into account the protection of (personal) data or trade secrets. Our experienced lawyers can support you with the introduction of digital tools to be used within the organisation or at the interface with external partners. >>

Implementation and Transformation

Modern working and organisational concepts offer companies attractive prospects and also sustainability. In addition to strategic realisation concepts, the main aim is to draw up binding rules in order to provide clarity and security for all those involved. In this innovative environment, special attention should be given to transformation in the organisation. >>
