Should I Worry About AI Taking Over My Job or Business?

Some of the best science fiction movies of the last 30 years have predicted this inevitability, but does this concept seem a bit far-fetched? Today, food can be ordered and delivered from the palm of your hand, whether you’re shopping for groceries or interested in a hot meal for the family, day or night. The barrier of entry for some includes the fees related to this convenience; however companies like Amazon have all but eliminated this barrier through subscription services.

These services are becoming more affordable with an increasing value add, as an example; Prime Memberships include video and music streaming services, free online deliveries with same day options, and most recently, free delivery services for those hot meals through Grub Hub.

The growing trend is convenience and in the age of information, less human interaction is required when this technology is easier to use and easier to find the information that you’re looking for. So how does this affect you? On a personal level, these advancements can be super helpful and make your life easier. But what do they mean for your job or business? It depends on how you look at it and how willing you are to embrace the technology and work alongside it.

What Does This Mean for You?

For business owners, this means creating an environment with a focus on creating a sustainable, automated business while finding purpose for the people that they employ. One thing that businesses should never disregard, is the fact that their employees, more often than not, are their best customers.

So when building any business automation within a company, key employees voices should be included in the planning. Doing so will not only help ensure the success of the build, but it will also allow them to truly work alongside technology from the beginning.

How to Make Technology Work Hand-in-Hand With Your People?

  • Eliminate redundant tasks which SHOULD be automated.
  • Reallocate this time saved to further educating your employees to help make the business better.
  • Reinvest the money earned to pay your most indispensable employees for the unique skills that they bring to the table.
  • Create a business culture which is ethical, sustainable and undeniable so that employees will want to work for you and do a good job.

Should You Be Worried?

The future is uncertain. But what you can do is learn to embrace technology and find ways to work alongside it, either as an employee or as a business owner. Then, no matter what the future brings, you will be prepared.
