Will RPA eliminate jobs?

Would you like to automate your Business processes but fear doing so may force you to eliminate your employees’ jobs? Do stats like, “RPA tools are 65% less expensive than full-time employees “or “each robot replaces 3-5 workers,” prevent you from examining options for “going digital?”

Do not despair! Most industry analysts and business leaders don’t think Robotic Process Automation (RPA) will hurt the workforce. In fact, many believe its impact will be the opposite.

Deloitte analysts explain, “Increased automation of tasks does not necessarily lead to loss of jobs—workforce augmentation, rather than replacement, may be a more likely outcome. By freeing up a person’s time, employees can now focus on more advanced and engaging tasks, and over time organizations could see lower turnover, higher morale, and increased internal innovation.”
