There’s 90% probability that the jobs we have today will vanish by 2030.

Lim pointed out how technology was the obvious reason for the upcoming changes in the labor sector. She furthered that in 10 years, knowledge jobs like writing, analyzing, and interacting will also be automated. This concluded the 90% probability that white-collar professions will significantly decrease by year 2030 as artificial intelligence and robotics, among many others, are now being perfected and will efficiently be applied in businesses as replacement for human talents.

These rapidly growing technology-driven innovations require companies certain advancements to be able to cope. However, not all business owners are capable due to the apparent expensive cost. It is also undeniable that there are still forms of work that are better done by humans such as customer service, mainly because maintaining the human and personal touch is still a major factor in customer retention.

Companies should be able to foster good relationships with their customers. How? Consultant and author Chris Komisarjevsky wrote in Huffington Post that the right balance is necessary between technological and human dimensions — with the latter always being a critical part. The undying truth is nothing can really replace personal interactions. These make your customers feel that they individually matter to your company.
