The robots are coming! Now is the time to embrace technological advances that are accelerating the process of replacing people with robotics and automation. It’s not about removing humans from the workplace, but rather enabling organisations to make the best use of their employees in areas that add value to the firm’s operations by delegating repetitive tasks to machines.
