This volume revisits the concept of e-HRM accordingly to the Industry 4.0, and it focus on the progression from e-HRM towards HRM 4.0 and it critically assesses the academic and business achievement in this field, and highlights the latest developments. We pick up the baton from the sixth e-HRM Conference that addressed the topic of the smart HRM e suggested to follow the growing development of the new technologic development and the organizational digital transformation. The ‘human-centred organization’ is inherently consistent with the industry 4.0 and it calls for reflections. The HRM field needs to focus on non-routine, evidence-based, science-inspired, creative, and value-added actions. What should be the role of HRM in the 4.0 environment? How can HRM activities change to support sustainable 4.0 organizations? How to design a human-centered organization in an ultimately jobless scenario? What individual and organizational competencies will be required to meet the expectations of the latest 4.0 business developments? Which organizational solutions will enable a fruitful and creative collaboration between human beings and ‘smart things’? What will be the impact of the 4.0 revolution on employment relationships and management practices? How could HRM practices drive social value in the 4.0 scenario? Moreover, how can research into HRM 4.0 issues inform whether, how and why changes occur? All these questions will challenge the e-HRM scholars for the next years and with this volume, we aim at following the digital developments, providing some stimuli, and moving the field further.
