Today, digitalization is revolutionizing traditional company internal functions and external connections. Among all activities, human resource management is significantly influenced by digitization. Companies are leveraging digital technologies to aid in HR management. Continuous innovation in HR management is crucial to ensure organizational competitiveness. Over time, traditional HRM has been increasingly affected by the broader digital transformation environment. This paper endeavors to explore the emerging trends of the four crucial aspects of HRM (talent recruitment, performance management, employee training and development, and compensation management) in the context of digital transformation, and accordingly proposes corresponding countermeasures for enterprises.
