Stefan Ries: The old days of HR are over. We need to revolutionize. Let’s innovate, disrupt, and challenge the status quo. At SAP, we call this shake-up “HR PUNKS”. It started as a small and crazy idea and is now a movement and campaign across the entire HR organization. What do we mean by HR PUNKS? In HR we now have the chance to move from an operational, back-office function to a leader of change. What might look like a contradiction at first is exactly the shakeup we are looking for: we need a bit of ‘punk’ to think outside of the box to get us there. Digitalization gives us the opportunity for this desired change. With the help of technology, we can create and deliver positive end-consumer experiences. How? By bringing employees with technology at work where they already are in their private lives: mobile, intuitive solutions, easy and fun to use. At SAP, we develop, sell and run people software solutions that help us do so.
