Beware Professional Services Workers: Robots Are Coming For Your Job Too!

Oct 1, 2021

GETTY As an advocate for STEM education, I engage many parents, many college graduates and professionals, who do not understand the depth, breath and impact automation is and will have on the future. For the most part, the biggest fears of many during this period of rapid technology advancement has been that blue collar positions, the laborers and builders of the world, would be the ones finding their positions threatened the most. It’s one reason why our organization, STEM Global Action, is so active in pursuing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) education for communities of color. We fear that unless our children learn STEM skills, the training that helps produce leaders in automation and innovation, they will be relegated to lower end jobs and careers that will be constantly threatened by new technologies.

(Photo by DAVID ESNAULT / AFP) (Photo by DAVID ESNAULT/AFP via Getty Images) AFP via Getty Images This scenario remains a concern. For years, we have witnessed challenges faced by workers engaged in manual labor. The first wave of automation hit agriculture, manufacturing, construction, mining and maintenance industries. The self-driving car and bot taking your pizza order cost companies far less than human workers. But the new elephant in the room is what has transpired in businesses of all shapes and sizes during the COVID pandemic. With workforces across the globe impacted and intimidated by the coronavirus, workers rightfully stayed home in droves, leaving businesses to turn to other options. And did they ever. We must now become familiar with the term “Robotic Process Automation” (RPA). It may be coming for your job regardless of whether you are White, Black or Brown or it is a white collar or blue-collar position that you are clinging to, hoping to stay employed. Whether you quit high school or have college or graduate degrees, it might not matter: if a robot or bot software can be programed to do your job, that positioned is threatened. MORE FOR YOU Numbers definitely tell the story. Globally, the R.P.A. market size dramatically expanded and was valued at $1.57 billion in 2020, with expectations that the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) will be 32.8% from 2021 to 2028. In fact, Deloitte’s recent annual global survey found that 73% of respondents said their organizations have embarked on a path toward intelligent automation - a significant 58% jump from 2019, probably due to the impact of the pandemic.

Carter Smith/Sygma via Getty Images) Sygma via Getty Images In real terms, there is a disruption occurring in white collar and professional service positions. It’s no longer just the fear of blue-collar workers that Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Robotics may replace them. Jobs that require creative thinking, judgement and human interaction are no longer off limits. Those working in sales, accounting, food services, banking, counseling and office support are poised to be the next victims of automation. Welcome to the age of Legal Zoom, telehealth, touch-screens and crisis and tech support fueled by automation, not human voices. The Covid pandemic sped up this transformation. Fears of spreading the virus and the resulting social distancing combined with long-term cost savings give C-Suites around the world incentive to embrace digital technologies. Experts estimate that one-fourth of all jobs in the economy require physical interaction and are directly impacted by the virus. Mark Muro, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, writing in The Economist said: “Robots’ infiltration of the workforce doesn’t occur at a steady, gradual pace. Instead, automation tends to happen in bursts, concentrated especially in bad times such as in the wake of economic shocks when humans become relatively more expensive as firms’ revenues rapidly decline. At these moments, employers can benefit by shedding less-skilled workers and replacing much of what they do with technology, while often investing in higher-skilled workers, which increases labor productivity as a recession tapers off.” TOKYO, JAPAN: Honda Motor's new humanoid robot Asimo, which can run at a speed of 6 kph and also to ...

(Photo credit should read YOSHIKAZU TSUNO/AFP via Getty Images) AFP via Getty Images What’s clear is that advanced technology is presenting unlimited opportunities for businesses to cut costs by replacing people with technology that can boost productivity and improve quality. Furthermore, businesses won’t have to worry whether human workers are concentrating on boring tasks – software doesn’t have minds that wonder. The paradigm shift in technology is quickly changing professional services. As the role of automation and AI grows, data science, machine learning and robotics, the very way things get done in America, will change dramatically. McKinsey & Company now projects that 45 million  American workers will be displaced by 2030, an increase from the 37 million workers in its previous projection. Even the most “human-centered” businesses must re-think their efficiencies. Tech has revolutionized every sector. Last spring, an article entitled, The Robots Are Coming for Phil in Accounting , in the New York Times put the challenge in perspective: “Executives generally spin these bots as being good for everyone, ‘streamlining operations’ while ‘liberating workers’ from mundane and repetitive tasks. But they are also liberating plenty of people from their jobs." A recent article entitled, Robots are coming for the lawyers , in Fast Company explores how part of a task can be automated turning any task that is extremely time-consuming for humans like preparing legal briefs into one where the heavy lifting can be done at the click of a button. Independent experts say that major corporate R.P.A. initiatives have been followed by rounds of layoffs, and that cutting costs, not improving workplace conditions, is usually the driving factor behind the decision to automate.” Walmart, Deutsche Bank , AT&T, Vanguard , Ernst & Young, Walgreens, Anthem and American Express Global Business Travel are among the many enterprises adopting RPA .

AFP PHOTO/ GERARD JULIEN (Photo credit should read GERARD JULIEN/AFP via Getty Images) AFP via Getty Images Clearly, humanity must learn to befriend AI, and be prepare for the onrush of technological advancements. For the most part, African American scientists, scholars and entrepreneurs understand that to secure their own futures, and for the next generation’s, they must be forward thinking and understand where the quality jobs and careers will be in the future. As leaders, we must plot beyond the R.P.A.s, and better comprehend and articulate how our students can land quality jobs, even as advancing technology continues to erase positions.
