We’ve all heard about the changes that automation may bring to the way we work. Have you considered how automation may affect your career?
When it comes to technology, we’re optimistic – history has shown that automation will create job growth. But there’s no doubt that automation will also affect us all personally at some point in the near future, and many roles that exist today will no longer exist in the future.
Reskilling the UK population to prepare for this change is vital – businesses need to motivate its workforce, and invest now. New technical skills take time to build and require investment.
Deloitte has worked with BITC to create a practical guide for how business could help areas of the UK workforce that are most at risk of displacement due to technological change. We focused on a series of practical ideas that would help to ease the impact of automation and support reskilling.
