The next decade will see a large no of new HR jobs.
What are we doing to prepare. Developing new skills?
As the use of robots in companies continues to increase, it has become apparent that there is a need for human-machine collaboration in the workforce.
Judgment is usually easy for humans, but still hard for computers.
Robots are very good at the “science” of a job, especially when reliance on computational capabilities, analysis and pattern recognition poses questions on the most appropriate action to take next based on all data available.
Humans are very good at assessing situations, or the “art” of the job, and essentially asking, “What is the right thing to do in a given situation?” Sorting out the balance of the “art of the job” (for humans) vs. the “science of the job” (for bots) will likely result in the creation of new HR roles focused on how both can work together intuitively.
One new job that could be created is the Human-Machine Teaming Manager, a role that operates at the intersection between humans and machines and aims to create seamless collaborations. These managers would look for ways to increase cooperation rather than competition.
