How do employees feel about the 4th Industrial Revolution?
Robot production lines. Driverless trucks and taxis.
Drones delivering goods. Algorithms running analyses.
All aspects of technology that might be taking the jobs of humans!
How do people feel about this?
Blind-fully blissful? Living in dread? Or somewhere in the middle?
This presentation will explore some of the potential trends and provide New Zealand data on working kiwis and what they think about the potential for robots taking their jobs!
