Automation, adaption, employment, unemployment, ethical leadership, and technology, LOS
This case study addresses the forthcoming concerns facing leaders regarding the impact on employment as automation and technology envelope our world. It is projected that thirty-five to forty-seven percent of the United States labor force, in multiple occupational fields, will be eliminated due to automation within the next ten to fifteen years (Frey & Osborne, 2013; Frey, Osborne, & Holmes, 2016). A technological adaptation developed in tandem with increasing a skilled labor force is needed. Without a skilled and educated workforce, the country's economic growth will be at extreme risk.
