The article considers the role of human capital in the transition to the remote work. The analysis of world changes in the field of safe and effective use of digital business environment and qualification of workforce in the conditions of growth of remote work is carried out. The analysis was conducted in the following areas: general features of the digitalizing in crisis and innovation, a new paradigm of business "Data is the new gold", the organization of the workforce in the transition to teleworking, the priorities of today's professions, the problems of cybersecurity in teleworking. It has been articulated that the main requirements for the today’s workforce are intellectual and creative abilities, competence in the field of creation and use of ICT, big data (data science, data mining, data analytics) and artificial intelligence, the role of which has grown even more due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The human component of intellectual capital (in the form of knowledge, skills and competencies, as well as intellectual and creative abilities) is gaining new importance in the digital economy. The analysis of relationship of the crisis and innovation made on the basis of the Clarivate Derwent report has demonstrated the impact of the pandemic on the global life cycle of research and innovation projects in the first half of 2020, namely that COVID-19 violated innovation strategy of the innovative leaders worldwide. The analysis has demonstrated: in the new conditions of accelerated digitalization, ingenuity and speed of decision-making and innovation are needed more than ever. These priorities will affect the world economy in the coming year. Special attention in analysis has been paid to the new business paradigm related to use and role of data. It was highlighted that digitization generates vast amounts of data that offer many opportunities for business, human well-being, and the environment. As a result, new capabilities and opportunities arise for business with the ecosystem of cooperation and partnership, as well as collaboration of stakeholders. The core of changes in digitalization is reskilling and upskilling of the workforce accounting new workplaces and new requirements for them. It is recognized that talent management and creative people selection can be the main engine in future transformation of economics, and workforce becomes an effective pole for investments. At the same time, it is argued that remote worker is outside the scope of corporate protection, and virtually any production information, like human capital, becomes much more vulnerable in such conditions and requires appropriate cybersecurity methods. As a conclusion, it is articulated that the ability of companies to use big data is beginning to play a significant role in the economy, which in turn requires the involvement and training of data processing and analysis specialists. The direction of professions that is being actively formed recently - data science - is one of the most priority in the labor market. At the same time, the labor market needs skills and abilities in the field of interpersonal communication (soft skills), which are able to ensure the effective operation of people and systems of hybrid intelligence "human-artificial intelligence". For the further research it has been recommended a comprehensive study of protection of objects and subjects of intellectual property in open networks.
