Automation and ‘robots’ are becoming high-profile subject matter across recent news stories and political commentary. Fear over automation leading to ‘robots’ taking over professional work, in the same way as the industrial and digital revolutions affected manual workers, is rife in the column inches of our news outlets. Are we headed for mass unemployment or does the future hold something brighter arising from the robot revolution? As a business that specialises in intelligent automation of business processes, we take a keen interest in the brave new world we are witnessing, and we see the myriad of benefits for not just businesses but also employees in those industries. Just as the industrial and digital revolutions led to an explosion in productivity, they also created a plethora of new, and in our opinion, much more satisfying jobs. Progress, however, doesn’t happen overnight, and there are plenty of ways that you can take advantage of the automation advances to improve productivity and work satisfaction in your business today.
