Doctor Who recently released an episode looking at a future where robots took up most of the workforce. In that reality, companies had to hit a “biological quota” of 10% of their employees being human. A silly, unrealistic future, right?
Well, maybe not. Recent research from RS Online has found there’s a very real possibility of robotic replacements coming to take jobs away from living, breathing people by the year 2030.
Worried about the concept of Wall-E or K9 coming in to take over your role? The study found the following sectors were the most at risk of one of these metallic employees taking their spot:
- Retail. Where 44% of jobs were at risk.
- Admin. Where 37% of roles could be taken.
- Manufacturing. Where 46% of positions could be up for grabs.
Are you worried about where your future is headed? Make sure to put yourself in a position which makes you irreplaceable across the next 10 years if you’re worried about the threat of a robotic revolution.
