The industrial revolution 4.0 is upon us, with disruptive technology rapidly changing one’s personal and professional lives. This is emerging as a disruption on organizational structure and on human resource allocation in organizations that are strongly leveraging new technologies. Furthermore, with the pandemic leading to work-from-home as the new normal, monumental changes are envisaged in the work landscape. The platform will help BMU as well as the industry to explore the associated risks and opportunities in the future and work on risk mitigation for better tomorrow.
Some of the interesting session/s such as Managing work during the Pandemic, How smart is your workplace? or Upskilling: Future-proof yourself from uncertainty could throw-up interesting insights as well as invite interest from the audience.

While we were already moving towards Industry: 4.0, we want to uncover, debate, and understand how the advent of Covid 19 has propelled this evolution. I am encouraged to see the enthusiasm of the industry stalwarts to be a part of our effort and am certain of successful discussion that will benefit each of the stakeholders. ”
