February 01, 2019

ManpowerGroup (NYSE: MAN) found 76% plan to upskill their workforce by 2020, up from 21% who said the same last year, according to the “Humans Wanted: Robots Need You” report released today.

“Organizations automating at a faster pace plan to create the most jobs, yet skilled talent is in short supply across the country,” said Becky Frankiewicz, president of ManpowerGroup North America. “We need to move past our fear of tech eliminating jobs and take action to reskill the workforce to ensure no one is left behind.”

IT also found 91% of US employers plan to increase or maintain headcount as a result of automation for the third consecutive year, 

The survey included 1,050 US employers.
