Would HR be able to deal with the ascent of automation?

Robots will keep on joining working environments over the world, with experts possibly profiting in the event that they make the fitting move now. That is as per Nick Deligiannis, overseeing executive of Hays in Australia and New Zealand.

“Even if you are one of the 50% of skilled professionals whose job has not yet been impacted by automation, it’s essential you don’t rest on your laurels,” he said.

“The automation of routine and repetitive job tasks is inevitable.”

Deligiannis’ remarks come as new research from Hays discovered portion of Australian laborers have just observed their activity duties change because of automation.

In an online survey of right around 2,000 (1,987) individuals in Australia led by Hays, 18% said automation has officially affected their activity ‘fundamentally’, with their obligations changing or their job getting to be excess.

In addition, another 32% said their activity has been affected ‘somewhat’, with a few undertakings automated and non-routine obligations expanding.

The last half said automation has so far had no effect on their everyday activity duties.

So as to deal with the ascent of automation, Deligiannis prescribes to think about what your activity would look like if all the daily schedule and tedious obligations you perform were automated.

At that point decide how you could occupy the time opened up by the automation of these assignments such that increases the value of your employer.

“Next, start to upskill in the higher-value areas you’ve identified so that you’ll be ready for the automation of your lower-value, repetitive tasks,” he added.

“But don’t just sit back and wait for automation to knock on your door. Be proactive and embrace change by exploring relevant automation tools and their practical application for your role.

“Set up a meeting with your boss to discuss these new tools and how they could be of use in your role. Then present your plan for how you can focus your time on higher-value tasks if your routine and repetitive job responsibilities were automated.”

Deligiannis finished up by saying that steady upskilling is the way to staying significant and employable when lower-esteem undertakings are automated.
