McKinsey & Company’s study reveals that approximately one in three US workers could lose their jobs to automation by 2030.
Half of all tasks could become automated using present-day technology, leading to a rise in computer-assisted work across sectors.
However, only 5% of jobs are likely to be replaced entirely by robotics or computers.
Instead, certain tasks will be automated, such as physical labor, machine operation, and data processing, and collecting.
Industries, including construction, food service, manufacturing, office administration, and retail, are the most likely to see a rise in automated workers.
In contrast, jobs that involve caring for others, managing people, and those requiring creativity and expertise are safe from automation.
To prepare for automation, individuals can develop skills that robots cannot perform, such as problem-solving, management, creativity, and emotional intelligence.
