The purpose of the article is to improve the strategic management of human capital in the context of digitalization. In modern conditions, the development of human potential is closely linked with the spread of digital technologies, which are being implemented and rapidly evolving in all spheres of the economy and society. In this context, the effectiveness of the processes of adaptation and competitiveness of socio-economic systems in the long run depends on the development and implementation of the concept of human capital development which takes into account the impact of digitalization processes on the formation of human capital, as well as on the relevant qualitative characteristics that will best meet the needs of the national economy in the transition to a digital model of governance. Methodology. The article is based on international legal acts, laws and bylaws of Ukraine in this area of legal regulation of human capital in the context of digitalization. Both general scientific and special methodology were used for the research: methods of analysis and synthesis, method of description, method of induction, method of deduction. Results. It is proved that the state policy in the field of human capital development in Ukraine today does not meet the modern challenges associated with the rapid development and spread of digital technologies. The consequences of this are already growing disparities in the labor market, shortage of highly qualified specialists with digital competencies at the appropriate level, growing trends in emigration of intellectual capital and gene pool of the nation abroad, reduction of the "middle class" and intensification of social degradation. Solving these problems requires the development and implementation of a Unified State Strategy for Human Capital Development, which will stimulate its formation, development and effective use in the vector of transition to a new technological system, ensure economic growth and high living standards. To this end, the concept of strategic development of human capital in the context of digitalization is substantiated. It systematizes the goals, principles, strategies and tasks of the state to ensure effective processes of human potential formation and its transformation into human capital in the context of implementing the strategy of sustainable development of the national economy under the influence of digital technologies. Conclusions. The strategy of human capital development in the conditions of digital transformations is substantiated. It is a system of interrelated directions, actions and mechanisms aimed at implementing the concept of formation, motivation and use of human capital, which meets the needs of the economy and society and contributes to the competitive advantage and continuous human development in the long run.
