Automation is changing corporate roles and responsibilities, creating new opportunities for professionals to work with greater skill and flexibility. Companies that proactively embrace this change can expect to benefit from more agility and productivity.
According to the World Economic Forum, over 1 in 3 companies expect that automation will help to create new productivity-enhancing roles for staff. Accountants who currently spend their time processing payments will instead be able to analyze financial data. HR professionals can design and deliver more training sessions rather than coordinate staffing rotas. Across every organization, automation will generate more valuable outputs for the employer and more meaningful work for the employee.
