Do UK workers find automation at work a hero or villain?
Summary for https://www.wrike.com/blog/uk-workers-find-automation-work-hero-villain/:
- The real challenge is making businesses and individuals more aware of just how much of their day-to-day work is repetitive, and making sure employees are then allowed to invest their newly gained time in tasks that add greater value to the business.
- Our survey shows that no less than 86 percent of employees are interested in technology that could cut the amount of time they spend on repetitive tasks and, in the UK, 73 percent believe that technology can help with operational efficiencies by taking on repetitive tasks.
- Stress levels and workloads are on the rise in the UK (69 percent and 59 percent, respectively, say they have increased) and workers have less time to spend outside of work (56 percent say time spent at home has decreased), which undoubtedly has a negative effect on workplace morale.
- Our research finds that nearly half of UK employees claim they could get between 25 and 50 percent more work done if technology takes on repetitive tasks.
