According to The Australian Financial Review, despite fears of a tech-led job apocalypse, the ongoing rise of digital transformation across Australian organisations will lead to the creation of 35,000 jobs in 2019, according to a comprehensive Australian study.
The study, titled "Beyond Disruption: Australian organisations race to digital transformation success”, found almost one in five organisations intend to create new roles to meet the growth of digital transformation this year.
Almost half said they expected to see humans and artificial intelligence working closely together and 57 per cent said more jobs would be created than removed by digital transformation.
Despite the positive tone of the research, it found urgent improvements are still needed in the top executive levels of many organisations, with 30 to 40 per cent of CEOs not considered digitally literate across various industry sectors.
