Re-skilling may ultimately be the deciding factor as to whether the South African economy survives the fourth industrial revolution.
According to a report by global consultancy Accenture, 35% of all jobs in South Africa are currently at risk of total automation, meaning that machines can perform 75% of the activities. Blue and white-collar jobs are at risk as well.
Hard-to-automate jobs include tasks like influencing people, teaching people, programming, real-time discussions, advising people, negotiating and cooperating with co-workers.
