Modernization and development are the main factors that contribute to national security, and people are those who bring about change through various methods and techniques. Among the primary systems ensuring national security, the human resources management system plays a decisive role in this process, and its modernization contributes to ensuring and enhancing national security. Modernization necessitates digitalization through the implementation of new informatics systems and processes. To ensure the efficient development of this modernization process, the enhancement of the human resources management system also implies the cultivation of leadership and leaders within organizations. Investing in people is highly beneficial because they are one of the most valuable resources within an organization. By improving human resources activities, an organization can reduce long-term costs. The use of digital human resources management poses a new challenge for every organization.
