This webinar will consider what it means to put the human at the heart of Industry 5.0 and why it has been so hard to move innovation beyond the 19th century paradigm of techno-centrism. Realising the strategic advantages of Industry 5.0 requires organizations to understand what makes work human, and what is distinctively human about work: skill and skilful practice. As well as making work meaningful, skilful practice can be a powerful source of innovation but too often managers misrecognise skill, undervaluing employees. Realising the benefits of Industry 5.0 will require an ‘upskilling’ of management to move beyond an efficiency paradigm to recognise, reward and develop the skills that matter strategically today.

Organizations can be redesigned to enable and empower people in their “onlife” world. However, it is the time to interpret people not only as actors who change the world through technology but also as subjects who are transformed by technology itself and enhanced by their willingness to experiment with new forms of structuring. Organization studies should focus beyond single organizations, revealing basic principles of the complex adaptive systems embedded at their crossroads. These may be explored by integrating approaches from different disciplines and mixing methods from network dynamics and sociology, as well as geography and urban studies.

BUIRA Annual Conference 2024: Industrial Relations in the Era of Multiple Crises: Inequalities, Industrial Action, & Intersectionalities after COVID-19.
