Human Resources in Times of Digitization – The Shifting Landscape of Performance Appraisals, New Trends and Approaches at German and Chinese Businesses

  • In this bachelor’s thesis, the fundamental new trends in Human Resources, due to digital transformation for instance, will be thoroughly examined. Primary research focus is placed on assessing the concrete differences between performance appraisal systems at German and Chinese multinational companies. Underlying Human Resources tools, such as the feedback, judgment and annual performance appraisal, will be discussed and disseminated as part of employee performance reviews and evaluations. This is intended to be achieved by offering fresh perspectives on the concepts of “New Pay” and peer evaluation among others. In the age of digital transformation, groundbreaking technologies like artificial intelligence, create a myriad of opportunities for potential applications in Human Resource Management. However, at the core of this research work stands the comparison between traditional and modern performance appraisal systems. Furthermore, the thesis aims at establishing a better understanding of these systems in practical fields, at the example of German and Chinese businesses. It is argued that benefits and shortcomings regarding new trends, technologies and innovations will play a major role for global corporations. Therefore, this thesis delivers a broad foundation for understanding not only general HR performance management tools but also current research and very relevant ongoing industry problems.
