The impact of automation on employment and industries

A new study from Deloitte examines the impact of automation on Swiss industries and the associated challenges and opportunities for companies.

The positive effects of automation on the Swiss labour market did not only dominate in the past, they are likely to do so in the future as well. Automation is having a differing impact on individual industries of the Swiss economy, however. Agriculture and forestry have the highest proportion of employees in jobs with a high likelihood of automation (76%), while the public administration, health and social services (17%), and information and communication sectors (19%) are the least likely to see jobs being automated. Increasing automation brings considerable advantages for companies. It enables production processes to be optimised, for example, or costs to be cut.
