Some HR jobs at risk of being replaced by robots in next 5 years: StudyDec 10, 2020 | 🚀 Fathership
Of the 27 HR roles that were analysed, 24 will be impacted by technology at varying degrees in the next three to five years, according to the study conducted by advisory, broking and solutions firm Willis Towers Watson released on Thursday.
Eight of these roles will be most severely affected and are at risk of being replaced.
This is because the tasks in these roles are administrative in nature and can be automated with advances in robotic process automation, machine learning and social robotics.
Technological advancements will lead to the creation of new roles in HR that are highly specialised, such as a HR data analyst, the study found.
"In the long term, people analytics will be a key skill required by all roles in HR rather than being a dedicated role," said Willis Towers Watson in its report.
