There’s some interesting survey results revolving around workers thoughts on where their job is at now and where it will be in 2025. In fact, only 1 in 10 people believe their job will be handled by an artificial intelligence ‘chatbot’ within a decade, and a staggering 1 in 3 feel the Monday to Friday will be redundant over the next 10 years, which certainly feels like it is going to happen, with many people working flexible hours and creating a life from their role.
In terms of technologies, the medical and financial services are frontrunners in support of technologies to mobilise their workforces, with 72% and 70% of decision makes respectively considering this a priority.
