Human Resources 4.0: Easy but difficult for HR
At the age of 4.0, one of the most frequently asked questions by the human resources (HR) department is, “What does human resources (HR) need to do to create human resources for businesses with complete capabilities, continually updated with new knowledge?” When it comes to this issue, the major solution is to continue focusing on teaching old skills, paying attention to future labor skills, and, most significantly, utilizing technology in HR management.

The reason is because the development of technology leads to constantly changing and updating skill sets. In fact, there is no exact solution for this matter because each industry and business will require different skill sets.

Appraise existing skills
Workers in the 4.0 era require not just new skills, but also reinforcement of basic competencies. Many talents, such as communication, creativity, and leadership, are quite familiar, but the requirements change when placed in a new situation. To begin re-evaluating the existing human resource skill set, HR managers can rely on the 4C model, which includes four fundamental abilities: critical thinking, creativity, collaboration, and communication.
Identify new skills for the future
The demand for skills connected to technology and emotions will rise in the future as society develops. As a result, not only HR but also businesses must pay close attention and equip themselves with new expertise, such as blockchain, AI, and automation, which are rapidly developing and being extensively used. Furthermore, social skills such as dealing with adversity, adjusting, and developing mental resilience will be new criteria for human resources in the current circumstances.
Take advantage of modern technology
In addition to predicting upcoming trends, it is critical to seek technological assistance in the process of implementing skills building that corresponds to the organization’s business plan. Because technological advancement is an unavoidable tendency in the world, various technology and data science solutions have been developed and implemented to assist organizations in their transformation. As the market evolves, businesses must be adaptable. Typically, human resource management software, employee training, timekeeping, and compensation computation are often gradually coordinated and automated to assist enterprises and HR in saving time and improving productivity.
