Robots will take 50 million jobs in the next decade. These are the skills you'll need to stay employ
A recent report finds that automation will take over a significant part of work activities in Europe by 2030.
More than 90 million workers across Europe (about 40% of the total workforce) will have to develop significant new skills within their current roles in the next ten years, as automation puts 51 million jobs at risk, warns a report released in June by analyst firm McKinsey.
And almost all of today's European workers will face some degree of change as their jobs evolve because of technology. But although the statistics seemingly feed into a common fear of robots taking over our jobs, quick conclusions needn't be drawn: the research also shows that employment growth in other sectors will largely compensate for overall job loss.
