Our people management readers will be pleased to know that, according to Will Robots Take My Job, HR managers have only 0.55% chance of being automated while training and development specialists are also safe, with a 1.4% likelihood of being replaced by automation.
Chief executives are also totally safe, with a 1.5% probability of automation, though there is a negative growth of -1% by 2024 in terms of numbers, according to the tool. Those of you with a marketing role can also cry 'hurrah', with all roles likely to be safe from being replaced by robots.

The tool is based on a methodology developed by Carl Benedikt Frey and Michael A. Osborne in 2013 that estimates the probability of computerisation for 702 detailed occupations, using a Gaussian process classifier.
