This paper aims to understand how HR professionals may effectively manage the transition to the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) work environment.  Data for this qualitative research was collected using semi-structured interviews.  The sample comprised of 60 managers drawn from different sectors using purposive sampling.  The grounded theory approach was used and data was analysed using open, axial and selective coding.  Recommendations based on the results of the study are graphically presented with the aim of providing practitioners with a framework guideline for implementation.  The goal is to facilitate the preparation and management of change as human resources, especially as business partners and drivers of change, enable their organisations to successfully transition into the 4IR work environment.
