The Two Reasons Behind Why Robots Won't Steal Your Job

The Two Reasons Behind Why Robots Won't Steal Your Job
  1. Computers are being trained to conduct highly-repetitive tasks. This then fosters a work environment that will place more focus on complex tasks for those with competitive salaries and widen the range of interesting careers.
  2. The competitive disadvantage will disappear. New roles will be offered and provided to those who want to enter the workforce. Younger workers are then more likely to be pioneers instead of trying to compete with their seniors.

So what gives people gravitas? “A sense of weight, importance and power,” said Brett. “Someone serious, whose words you listen to, someone you trust and respect.” And those who didn’t possess it? “Lightweights, people who talk too much or joke around.

What counts as a robot

When we're talking about robots taking people's jobs, we're speaking of automation.

Mechanical automation, like car assembly lines, has been around for a while.

Software automation, also known as process or work automation, involves using code to automate tasks that humans would otherwise have to do, like creating an invoice in an accounting program.

Conflict At Work

Having a debate with your boss or your colleague is normal or a disagreement. However, fighting is not.

There are several forms of conflict that may manifest as:

  • People who pretend that there is no problem when clearly there is;
  • People who are outright aggressive and competitive; and
  • People who are knee-deep passively-aggressive.
