Facilitator Name:
Dr. Arunprasad P., Director, Business Research & Consulting, University of Dubai - co-branded with SHRM

Workshop Description:
IR 4.0 considered as bundles of technical innovation and organizational changes that arise from a strategic integration. In today’s scenario, we are unconsciously adding 2,500,000,000,000,000,000 (2.5 quintillion) bytes of data each day. Over the last two years 90% of the data in the world was generated. Currently we are witnessing the cold war between Human Intelligence and Artificial Intelligence and the trade-off between actual and Augmented/Virtual Reality, with the advancement and emergence of Industrial revolution 4.0. IR 4.0 cut across technological, organizational, production and business-related aspects along with the interdependencies among them. Therefore, it includes the business-related functions such as Strategic Management and planning, HR Strategy, Marketing Strategy, Information Technology strategy and smart supply chain management strategy through AMBIC Model i.e. Artificial Intelligence & Robotics, Mobility, Blockchain, IOT and Cloud Technology. So how does it matter to Employees and HR professionals? Moving away from one size fit all; from process focused to people focused; from business partner to human partner; last but not the least, from HR professionals to Employee Experience professionals. For example, in the rapid rise of GIG economy, prospective employees are in the trajectory path of hiring/choosing organizations to work that suits their comfort zone and aspirations, which challenges the fundamental hiring pattern of organizations to meet the resource needs. To face such futuristic needs of the evolving business models across sectors, and reinforce “Employee Experience” culture in organization, IR 4.0 could will play a dominant role with the application of AI/ Robots, Robotic Process Automation, Big data and Infographic based analytics, Blockchain, Augmented Reality, and Integrated ERP.
