Automation and Future of Work

Technology is progressively being implemented into businesses to improve efficiency and accuracy throughout the whole system. It seems in the production and manufacturing stream and the front end sales division as well. More and more workers are feeling displaced and unprepared for the pace in which technology is moving. With the drive to build a design in motivation to help these displaced workers, design thinking methods were utilized in understanding the situation and areas of opportunity:

• Interviews
• Design Insights
• How Might We's

A significant finding was soft skills are the next stream of subjects that will be critical for the workforce as these skills will be the ones that technology will not be able to replace. MicroShip builds upon this and brings awareness to companies and employees to learn about soft skills beneficiaries and understanding of one another.

Learning to Adapt to Changes

We need each other to work our best. Technology can process information at astronomical rates, and physically work longer on focused mechanical tasks, but at the core, our automation skills are essentially hyper-e client predictions generated at a scale never seen by humanity before. We depend on people’s intuitive soft skills of communication, critical thinking, leadership, positive attitudes, teamwork, and work ethics to navigate the very fundamental why + how of the workplace.

The reality is that so much of the work that’s relatively resilient automation is because there are these soft skills that are actually harder to teach, harder to articulate the value to employers but absolutely essential. In a more automated economy those soft skills are actually going to be even more in demand..”
