Will Robots Take Your Job?


Designed and developed by Dimitar Raykov and Mubashar Iqbal, uses data from the 2013 report, “The Future of Employment: How susceptible are jobs to computerisation?” as well as data from the Bureau of Labor. The researchers for that study estimated 47 percent of total US employment is at risk of automation.

You can search for your own gig (reporters and correspondents are at an 11 percent risk of automation, or hit the randomized button to see an example from their database (metal and plastic pattern makers are at 90 percent risk). Alongside the risk percentage are projected growth rates in the next seven years, the amount of people sharing that job title as of 2016, and median annual wage.

Sorry To say data reveals positions such as Bank Tellers, Postal Clerks, Office Clerks, Cashiers,Retail sales person are about 96% doomed. Librarians 65% Train Operators 86% Dispatchers except Police Fire 3ll

Unnoticed Bill Will Demand Workers Genetic Test Results


A bill moving through Congress would allow companies to require employees to undergo genetic testing or risk paying a penalty and would let employers see that genetic and other health information.

Such power is now prohibited by legislation including the 2008 genetic privacy and nondiscrimination law known as GINA. The new bill gets around that landmark law by stating explicitly that GINA and other protections do not apply when genetic tests are part of a “workplace wellness” program.

The bill, HR 1313, was approved by a House committee on Wednesday, with all 22 Republicans supporting it and all 17 Democrats opposed. It has been overlooked by the debate over the House GOP proposal to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, but the genetic testing bill is expected to be folded into a second ACA-related measure containing a grab-bag of provisions that do not affect federal spending, as the main bill does.

Undermining Is Toxic


The Signs

They put you on the defensive

Underminers typically don’t stick to just one victim(someone was had in the past)

  A gossip-monger

They try to distract you

They leave you out

 Sabotaging your reputation by spreading nasty rumors

Presenting himself or herself as your superior

Slightly rude comments, backhanded compliments, and hostile, mocking body language

You haven’t done anything wrong — at least, you don’t think you have — but everyone seems to be treating you strangely, from your fellow coworkers to your boss. Can’t figure out what’s up?It’s possible that your undermining colleague has already gotten to them.

Unlike overt bullying or harassment, undermining can be harder to pinpoint and detect.The underminer doesn’t use blatantly hostile language or actions to take you down. He or she quietly works to bring you down, which is why it’s important to be extra careful around them.

Always trust your gut and proceed with caution


More Workplace Trends: Perks & Gig Economy Will slow Down


According to Glassdoor research sixty seven percent of U.S. employees said they were not likely to apply for a job at a company where men and women were paid unequally for the same work.

Boston Consulting Group says that by 2025, up to a quarter of jobs will be replaced by either smart software or robots, and a study from Oxford University reveals that 35% of existing U.K. jobs are at risk of automation in the next 20 years.

Tom Davenport and Julia Kirby have researched and wrote a book on this subject called Only Humans Need Apply: Winners and Losers In the Age of Smart Machines. Their bottom line is this: machines are less likely to displace entire jobs, but will more likely replace specific tasks and in the process will augment many jobs.

Jobs Will Be Impacted by Intelligent Technologies

.  Presently journalist can tap into algorithms from two firms called Narrative Science and Automated Insights, that use machine learning to write an article in a matter of seconds. The journalist then can focus on writing a more strategic view of the article. In other words, leverage the technology to do what it does best and re-frame the article to a more analytical level.

Wealth advisors are already seeing the power of Analytix Insights, a company that creates investment analytic narratives on more than 40,00 public companies.The job of a wealth advisor is already automated, the critical part of advising clients, establishing trust, and providing personalized expertise is the opportunity for wealth advisors to enhance their skill sets.

The proliferation of automated teller machines has actually led to slightly more bank tellers, due to both bank deregulation and job augmentation as bank tellers now reduce their time on cash handling responsibilities and can be trained to provide relationship based services to bank customers.

Tech Inequality In HR Dept

Snapshot1peach dress_001

A recent study suggest that  92 % of workers in HR dept some form of outdated system.  The HR tech industry is growing fast.

In the last five years it has grown by 50 percent into a $10 billion industry. Attracting and retaining talent has become crucial for every company worldwide . There are plenty of roadblocks preventing businesses from taking the HR tech leap. For instance, there are often concerns from HR employees around the difficulty of the technology. You’ll want to ensure that you focus on integrating user-friendly software or hardware that won’t intimidate your employees. And you also want to avoid simply adding more technology on top of what you already have, otherwise employees may look at it and say “Why do I need other tools in addition to my current HRIS system? according to Steffen Maier, co-founder of Impraise — a company that provides real-time employee feedback for HR — and Tom Haak, partner at Crunchr — a company that uses data analytics to create meaningful employee data.Attracting and retaining talent has become crucial for every company worldwide and therefore, having a great work culture should be a part of every company’s priority list, if companies want to remain competitive, motivate employees and grow their business.

The Future Of Work & Digital Technology

business suit2_001

Approximately five years ago, machine learning could, with guidance from senior lawyers, effectively take over the time–intensive task of legal discovery, in which one party in a lawsuit combs through its documents to determine what it must show to the other side before trial. This job was traditionally done by junior lawyers, paralegals, increasingly-less expensive contract lawyers. Some said with dismay, that the change might be just the first step in the computerization of the law.

Economist Frank Levy, an MIT professor emeritus who, with Dana Remus, a professor at the University of North Carolina School of Law, are researching computers’ impact on the practice of law, explains “though machine learning does well with structured tasks like searching for relevant words, handling documents similar to others already identified, and even reconstructing simple summaries of a baseball game, it is far less adept at constructing something like a legal memo, where persuasiveness can rely on developing novel arguments”.

Levy, who co authored a book (with Harvard professor Richard Murnane) titled, The New Division of Labor,about how computers are changing employment and the job market, says”There’s much less structure in a legal memo, which is trying to figure out a strategic approach to an argument.”

It’s likely that work done by humans will increasingly involve innovative thinking, flexibility, creativity, and social skills, the things machines don’t do well. University of Oxford, researchers tried to quantify how likely jobs are to be computerized by evaluating how much creativity, social intelligence, and dexterity they involve. Choreographers, elementary school teachers, and psychiatric social workers are probably safe, according to that analysis, while telemarketers and tax preparers are more likely to be replaced. Most professions won’t go like that of the telemarketer, but the work involved is likely to migrate toward the tasks humans are uniquely skilled at, with automation taking over tasks that are rules-based and predictable.

Digital and mobile technologies are changing how and where we work, (at home or remotely), and who our competition is.Tianjin, China, there are riots where, taxi drivers are fighting the arrival of Uber and the bite it has taken out of their income. The people who drive for Uber are largely part-timers looking to make a little extra money. Uber customers in China take nearly one million rides a day, and management is investing more than $1.1 billion to expand into 100 more cities this year. The job of driving cars has not gone away, but the way that work is done is changing, and the transition is not painless.
