Forty-two percent of managers believe that the adoption of robotics and automation will result in the elimination of jobs. And just 18 percent said that automation will help to create jobs. According to the report, a mix of hard and soft skills is key for employees to outperform robots. About 40 percent of managers, however, said that their employees are currently lacking in both areas. The soft skills that will best separate humans from robots include:

  • Creative thinking (cited by 30 percent of respondents);
  • Critical thinking (29 percent);
  • Communication (21 percent);
  • Decision-making (21 percent); and
  • Negotiation (20 percent).
