In today's rapidly evolving technological landscape, automation is at the forefront of the next technological revolution promising increased efficiency and productivity to organizations across industries by harmonizing human-and-machine collaboration effectively. The true adoption of automation’s benefits via emerging technologies, including robotics process automation (RPA), the internet of things (IoT), machine learning (ML), and artificial intelligence (AI), also hinges on future readiness, reshuffling of roles, change management, and skill fitment with reduced human involvement.
Given the accelerated integration of human touch and machine capability together at the workplace, the rapidly changing employment dynamics are creating both excitement and fear regarding future employability trends pinned on the role of humans in automation-driven collaborative ecosystems. Many people agree to the fact that automation expands their work horizon and makes them more strategic within the organization by eliminating repetitive manual tasks, improving efficiency, and detecting errors in real time.
However, many of them still see automation as the workforce’s biggest threat and are resistant to automation out of FOBO, i.e., fear of becoming obsolete. They are still cautious about accepting the nexus of AI and human connection in modern workplaces and worry that automation could lead to job losses. Their resistance to change management has become the biggest roadblock for organizations on the verge of embracing labor-saving technology to accelerate their digital transformation journey faster.
