Although the transition between the first three industrial revolutions took more than a century, Industry 4.0 is progressing quickly. The emergence of digitalization has been rapid thanks to the development of cutting-edge technologies such as IoT, cognitive computing, Big Data, Blockchain etc. Though we are witnessing this rapid technological decentralization and inter-connectivity at present, organizations and researchers are already talking about Industry 5.0 where a full integration of the human side of business and intelligent systems is expected. In this scenario, we shall look forward to such strategic workplaces that allow a combination of humans and technology to assure a high degree of automation merged with the cognitive skills of business leaders. However, there are a lot of questions that need answers. Such as when is it likely to happen? What kind of technologies (Artificial Intelligence/Machine learning) are we looking forward to? What would be the potential outcomes? What kind of new jobs will be created? The book aims to delve deep into these issues and provide a road map to future research and practice.


The book aims to provide insights into the impact of industrial revolution 5.0 in HR. This is important as Industry 5.0 will majorly focus on human -technology integration. The readers will gain varied research perspectives on the implication of industry 5.0 on future workplaces. The book will provide sufficient literature to the researchers. Moreover, experts in HR/OB/Strategy are already intrigued by the rapid adoption of technology and displacement of conventional jobs at the workplace. However, there is a serious dearth of literature available in this area, so this book will address that need and also will provide insights for both industry and academia to assist them in teaching and training the next generation leaders through universities and corporate training.
