International integration and Industry 4.0 have created challenges in gaining a full awareness of the nature and content of development trends and innovation in human resources management, according to experts at the national scientific conference on “Managing Human Resources in Businesses in the Context of Integration and Industrial Revolution 4.0” held on April 18 in Hanoi.

Many new issues in human resources management in enterprises have arisen, affecting operations such as recruitment, training, remuneration, welfare, labor relations, corporate social responsibility, the business environment, legal policies, and the labor market.

Ms. Nguyen Thi Nam Phuong, Vice President of the Human Resources Association of Vietnam (HRA) under the Asia Pacific Federation of Human Resource Management (APFHRM), said that Industry 4.0, with IoT, big data, and AI, has created an innovative business model on methods for using human resources, methods for implementing human resource management operations and internal services, and a paperless work environment. “Industry 4.0 also opened up a strong development future for human resources training and development, and poses a great challenge to vocational and training schools to meet the quality of personnel businesses require,” she added.

Mr. Tran Xuan Cau from the National Economics University said that human resources in the context of Industry 4.0 form two groups - people and robots - in which robots will compete and replace people. “AI will replace part of human intelligence, bringing greater efficiency, while direct connections between people will also be replaced by indirect but closer and faster connections through IoT,” he said. “Vietnam needs to apply modern management models in addition to forming a team of human resources managers who are well-trained, professional, energetic, and adaptable to modern management techniques and technologies.”

Held by University of Labor and Social Affairs (ULSA) and Thuongmai University, the conference aims to promote scientific research, enhance academic exchanges, and share experience and research methods in the field of labor and human resources management, and promote cooperation between universities and organizations / businesses in training human resources management.
