What do you know about Philips? Probably the first thing that comes to mind is a Philips TV, or a similar type of consumer product. Yet, while Philips does produce a huge range of goods, it’s not only what the company is about – not anymore. Nowadays, Philips strives to make the world healthier and more sustainable through innovation. Philips IT and their digital transformation are a hugely important part of this process, a process in which HR plays a key role.
