HSE GSB professors have completed a publishing project to prepare translations of WEF Reports
In 2021, the HSE Graduate School of Business’ team successfully completed a publishing project to translate and publish the World Economic Forum Reports: "HR4.0: Shaping People Strategies in the Fourth Industrial Revolution" and "Jobs of Tomorrow. Mapping Opportunity in the New Economy". The project was implemented in close cooperation with the World Economic Forum under the HSE University Project Group Competition.
A project team from the HSE Graduate School of Business consisted of: Deputy Dean for Internationalization, Associate Professor, Programme Director of Master in International Management and International Business Programmes Anna Di Nardo; Deputy Dean for Corporate Affairs, Professor, Programme Director of Strategic Management and Consulting and Management of Corporate Sustainable Development Programmes Alexander Dynin; Associate Professor Olga Mondrus; Professor Veronica Kabalina and Associate Professor Liudmila Cheglakova, who was the project leader.
The report "HR4.0: Shaping People Strategies in the Fourth Industrial Revolution" was prepared in collaboration with major multinational companies and aims to find new strategies for managing people in the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR). According to the report, HR leaders play a critical role in ensuring that businesses can successfully adopt and implement new technologies, supporting employees as their roles, tasks and skills change, and by integrating new expectations of employees and society to create an attractive and inclusive workplace.
The report "Jobs of Tomorrow. Mapping Opportunity in the New Economy" claims that the Fourth Industrial Revolution is creating demand for millions of new jobs with vast new opportunities to fulfil people's potential and aspirations. However, to turn these opportunities into reality, new sources of data and innovative approaches to understand emerging jobs and skills, as well as the capacity for effective and coordinated large-scale action, are urgently needed around the world. The report looks in detail at the 'black box' of job creation, analyzing the shift in employment focus towards the new professions of the future, the reasons for this and what skills these professions will require.
The publications are available at the HSE Central Library on Pokrovsky Boulevard or at the HSE GSB Library on Shabolovka.
