A recent study by specialist recruiter Robert Half and Burning Glass revealed that the demand for digital automation skills is rising gradually in the UK as businesses try to become more efficient and remove repetitive tasks.
Indeed, it was stated that implementing automation is especially seen among non-technical roles, including management consultants and sales directors. By analysing nine million job postings, the research showed that the number of roles requiring automation will reach up to 90,000 in 2021.
Hence, automating repetitive tasks and other roles will help businesses become more efficient and productive. As automation becomes more pervasive in the workplace, roles and job functions will also undergo a significant change. With the rise in automation skills, it is then vital that enterprises start investing in continuous training, to better prepare the UK workforce for the future.
