Human resources in a new reality. Rise of the machines or progress out of necessity?

The pandemic reminded mankind yet again about just how weak and vulnerable humans are - as estimated by the International Labor Organization, 25 million people worldwide may lose their jobs due to the unprecedented, in terms of scale and reach, economic shutdown. Some experts are convinced that mankind will see an automation boom in the near future. In light of the pandemic and its consequences, many employers may see machines as more reliable workers than humans.

  • What jobs performed by humans were found to be most vulnerable after the COVID-19 outbreak?
  • Can Russia expect a boom in automation in business?
  • What is the optimal balance between human and ‘machine-based’ resources?
