Welcome to Digital Workplace 4.0 - Understanding Digital Disruption in the Workplace
Read the latest op-ed by Head of HASS Prof Sun Sun Lim and her co-authors Dr Brigid Trenerry and Dr Gayathri Haridas of SUTD's Lee Kuan Yew Centre for Innovative Cities, explaining why it is crucial to ensure gender diversity and inclusiveness as we enter the era of Industry 4.0.
Concerns are growing about the impact of digital disruption on jobs and workplaces – from the challenges of adopting new technologies (e.g. artificial intelligence, blockchain and cloud computing) to the rapid transformation of key industries. As jobs and workplaces evolve, organisations must strive to understand how to prepare their employees and create agile workplaces to bolster organisational resilience and maintain competitiveness.
Our research aims to help organisations like yours do exactly that. In partnership and consultation with you, we will track the nature and scale of workplace digital disruption in your organisation. We will assess how you and your employees can best respond to the challenges of disruption so as to retain your competitive edge.
As all industries in Singapore are likely to be transformed with the introduction of new and emerging digital industrial technologies,
our research will inform the expedited adoption of new technologies, skills development and training, the creation of new jobs, and development of policy responses to digital disruption. We are inviting organisations like yours to participate in the research project.
