Workers increasingly worried automation will make them redundant

Concerns among employees that automation might make their roles redundant have been exacerbated by the pandemic, a new report from TotalJobs and Boston Consulting Group claims.

Polling more than 209,000 people in 190 countries, the pair found workers aged 31-40, especially those who were laid off during the pandemic, to be most fearful of AI and automation taking their jobs. This is despite the fact that this cohort had the smallest proportion of people laid-off.
