Will robots create good jobs?

BSR defines a “good” job it’s one that provides sufficient income, is open to everyone, doesn’t harm the health and safety of the worker, and has room for growth into other roles. Jessica Davis Pluess, the author of the report, recommends that companies should be studying how automation will change their business, and further, they should develop career pathways for those who might be replaced by a machine.

“The research was really trying to understand what are some of the key issues that companies could face in terms of automating, in terms of the impact on current and future workforces and really trying to understand how automation connects so that more people can benefit from this era of technology change,” says Davis Pluess.

In the end, the picture is still pretty bleak.
