Robotic Processing Automation (RPA) has been around for many years now, and we can’t see it going away any time soon. In fact, we predict that RPA will effectively transform the modern workplace very soon. On the surface, you might think that’s because robotic processes will simply replace human work, relegating many occupations across the world to obsolescence. Luckily, that’s not the direction that RPA is headed at all. Over half of the respondents of a Pew Research Centre study believe that the number of jobs created by machine learning will exceed the number of jobs canceled because of its introduction.So, how exactly will RPA change jobs of the future?

RPA and the Modern Workforce

RPA related jobs are expected to rise in popularity, but what will those jobs entail? The automotive industry has witnessed many new job opportunities due to RPA and machine learning popularity, so we can observe their progress for insight. Automotive engineers, factory administrators, transmission experts and many other roles are starting to ramp up their emphasis on RPA and machine learning because of the rise in popularity of driverless vehicles. Car companies are racing to produce the first widespread commercially successful driverless car, and advanced programming solutions with machine learning implemented are part of the recipe that will bring it to the public.

That’s a pretty narrow focus, however. It’s great that advanced machine learning is included in the design of driverless vehicles at the pinnacle of the automotive industry, but that’s hardly practical for other businesses looking to get their feet wet in RPA implementation.

In truth, RPA has a place in essentially every business type. That’s why we see enterprises like insurance, telecom, healthcare, banking and finance enlist the help of RPA for repetitive tasks. In these cases, job opportunities will be created simply to automate these tasks in the first place. For example,rather than just mindlessly adhering to a predetermined procedure for invoicing services, employees will dig deeper and gain a firm grasp on the nuances of the procedures. From there, they can play a larger role in actively understanding the data at hand and make key design decisions accordingly.  

Overall, the adoption of RPA and machine learning isn’t a reason to fear for job security. In addition to creating new job opportunities RPA implementation will:

  • Increase data quality
  • Increase employee engagement
  • Boost employee morale with rewarding work
  • Provide team with meaningful learning opportunities.
