The world of work as we know it is rapidly undergoing radical transformation and the boundaries and worldview of work are being fundamentally redefined daily. Leading the assault on our worldview and understanding of work, the workplace and the workforce is the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) and its signature disruptive trends like Artificial Intelligence, Cryptocurrency and Digitalization. The Ability to adapt and leverage the 4IR will determine the currency of global relevance and the achievable degree of sustainable development across Africa.
The World Economic Forum predicted that 41% of all work activities in South Africa are susceptible to automation, as are 44% in Ethiopia, 46% in Nigeria and 52% in Kenya. The World Economic Forum’s Human Capital Index finds that Sub-Saharan Africa currently only captures 55% of its human capital potential, compared to a global average of 65%. This index could be worsened with the advent of the fourth industrial revolution.
The looming Tsunami of the new world of work associated with the fourth Industrial Revolution portends great prospects and danger for Africa’s and will potentially have colossal ramifications in the near future on work, the workplace, how work is done and the workforce.
The learning Outcomes will focus on:

- How will the 4IR impact on the New World of Work?
- What will be the Impact of the 4IR on Africa’s HR?
- What should Africa’s HR leaders be doing to prepare for the Tsunami of New World of Work?
