Industry 4.0- Impact on jobs

In today’s world,there are unprecedented changes in various industries;changes characterized by progressive digital transformation, the creation of connected networks between products, value chains and business models. These activities take plce within the fourth industrial revoltion, described as ‘Industry 4.0’ .

These new technologies – in particular, digitalization and computerization of production processes and market processes – drive industry 4.0, but the need to build a competitive advantage still remains the real foundation of ongoing change. Today, this advantage is primarily created by the unprecedented flexibility of business. The central issue in industry 4.0 is to understand the impact of robotization and artificial intelligence on industry and the economy , and to adapt business models to cater to increasingly demanding customers. The active role of the state as a creator and regulator of innovation is also indispentable. Considering the trends of change within industry 4.0, nine leading technological solutions can be identified that will revolutionize industrial production and services. These are: Big data and analytics, cloud technology, autonomous robots, simulations, augumented reality, horizontal and vertical software integration, industrial use of the internet of things, cyber security and the application of 3D printers.

Industry 4.0 creates huge oppurtunities for the development of enterprises and, hence, national economies. But it also raises worker concerns regarding their employment in the new, evolving environment of robotic production and services. Industry 4.0 not only affects the demand for new professions the labour market and changes all existing rules.


Able to capable - upskill

In a world in which the skills required in the workplace change at the speed of light, what is perhaps more essential is a focus on human capabilities that endure and can be applied across situations – qualities such as empathy, curiosity, creativity, imagination, resilience, critical thinking , social intelligence, emotional intelligence etc. These qualities are timeless and especially relevant given that many jobs may not necessarly involve “knowledge work” and may not be high-wage positions . Therefore ,creating, developing and enhancing capabilities could equip people to be lifelong learners, able to adapt to any situation, acquire skills for these situations and add value.


Learning for life

It is widely felt that educational systems have not kept pace with changing nature of work. As a result, many employers say they cannot find enough workers with the attitudes and abilities required for the workplace. At the same time, many mid-career workers find themselves will equipped to meet the needs of the modern workplace. A possible solution to these issue is life long learning. Both individuals and organizations need to adopt a mental map that centers on lifelong learning; learning that builds core human capabilities and also skills in the tandem.


The industry connect

It requires visionary leadership to recognize that enduring human capabilities and lifelong learning have the power to build skills and business value. And such leadership and guidance needs to come from industry.
