“We do believe we can be excited about the future of work, and there are opportunities for workers to benefit but we are doing them a disservice if we sit back and let the market decide how tech changes the workplace” - @Lauren_Crowley
At @CommonsBEIS @Lauren_Crowley raises the automation commission set up by Community through our @ChangingWorkC in partnership with @thefabians. Find out more about the commission and submit evidence here: changingworkcentre.org/the-commission…
.@Lauren_Crowley gives the example of steelworks in Austria where companies planned for the future when beginning the process of automation, and trained any workers who’s jobs were becoming redundant with new skills for different jobs.
Automation can work in the interests of workers if government and business plan and equip for the future, reskill workers and give workers a stronger voice on the future of their workplaces
“We haven’t strengthened employee consultation rights in this country for some time and we can’t rely on employers to do this on their own - government must play a leading role.” - @Lauren_Crowley
At @CommonsBEIS @Lauren_Crowley highlights data that shows women are more than twice as likely as men to have a job that’s at high risk from automation
