Automation is shaping the future of work. Not the distant future, though. The future that is now — tomorrow. Every modern workplace and industry is on the digital transformation journey, making it only a matter of time before every role within enterprise organizations will evolve with automation.
Change is happening quickly, with the groundswell of business interest in — and adoption of — Robotic Process Automation (RPA) growing rapidly.
Deloitte reported that just 15% of business leaders noted RPA as part of wider corporate initiatives in 2016. Compare that to 2017, where 64% of organizations that have embarked on the RPA journey have RPA as either an enterprise-wide or strategic initiative.
That’s just the change in one year.
Think about next year. Now is the opportune time to pursue RPA learning and development — both as an organization and as an individual.
The rapid expansion and extension of RPA initiatives within global organizations has born a whole range of new RPA-related roles and new critical skill areas for existing roles, such as business analysts.
Professionals and students have the chance to develop skills today that will enable rapid career advancement in the future. The key thing to remember: The future of work is already here. There’s really no time to waste.
