How automation will change our careers forever

Graphic News

April 30, 2019 -- Artificial intelligence, robotics and globalisation are rapidly changing the workplace, opening up new markets and increasing productivity. But young, low-skilled, part-time workers face being left behind.

Modern technological advances are rapidly changing the workplace, and nations must act quickly to prepare for the effects or face increasing social and economic tensions, says the OECD.

In the “Employment Outlook 2019” report, it claims 50 percent of jobs could disappear or be drastically altered in the next 20 years due to automation – saying the pace of change is going to be startling.

Safeguards and training methods developed over many years to protect workers are now struggling to keep up with meteoric changes in the workplace. It is believed that some workers will benefit as technology opens new markets, but young people with lower levels of education, in low paid jobs, will be left vulnerable.

The OECD recommends revamped training regimes and urges governments to greatly improve protections for employees in the “grey zone” – a hazy area of employment and self-employment that often means workers lack rights.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era, coming soon…

And it will be worth the wait! The Graphic News website is undergoing a complete redesign. The new site will not only see improvements in terms of speed and user experience, but will also include many new features. For example, existing subscribers will be able to manage their accounts online via a group dashboard, and add selected graphics to lists for project planning (and which can be shared across the group).

Existing users will need to register individually - we’ll be sending instructions to our main contacts at each group and will be on hand to help you through the process, which we hope will be seamless!
