Abstract: The integration of digital technology into diverse industries and service sectors is
revolutionizing workplaces and reshaping human resource practices. The incorporation of
cutting-edge technologies associated with the Fourth Industrial Revolution, commonly known as
Industry 4.0, is redefining the dynamics of work, learning, leadership, management, recruitment,
and interpersonal interactions. This paper aims to provide an in-depth understanding of Industry
4.0 and its implications on human resource management (HRM), promoting directions for HRM
professionals and academics to confront the challenges associated with Industry 4.0. The study
utilized a methodology of bibliometrics analysis including network analysis, co-citation network,
historiography, cluster analysis, three-field analysis, thematic map, and content analysis (CA)
to analyze 269 documents from the Scopus database to identify hitherto research on this topic
of HRM and industry 4.0. Additionally, a systematic literature review (SLR) was conducted to
propose future research directions in industry 4.0 and HRM practices. The findings suggest that
the focus of research in this field is on the impact of Industry 4.0 on various HRM functions such
as recruitment, selection, orientation, training and development, performance analysis, and
compensation management for human capital acquisition, nurturing, and retention. The study
offers managerial insights for organizations to navigate the evolving landscape and leverage
digital technology for enhanced HR functions, thereby effectively managing their workforce.
