A third of workers are worried their
job will be automated within 10
years, new research has revealed.
One in 10 workers believes they'll
lose their job within two years, and
UK employers are failing to prepare
staff for the impact of automation
according to payroll firm ADP.
"Automation may seem like an
issue for future generations, but our
findings show that machines could
replace thousands of employees in
as few as five years," says Jeff Phipps,
ADP's managing director.
"By starting to upskill and retrain
workers now, employers can ensure
they and their employees are as
ready as possible to work side-byside with the machines," he added.
