"AI presents a tremendous opportunity for companies to improve functions by reducing error and boosting efficiency," said Steve Saah, executive director of Robert Half Finance & Accounting. "Implementing technology to address routine tasks also frees up employees' time to take on strategic work that adds value to the business."

Saah added, "Automation can create more opportunities for employees to engage in creative, collaborative, relationship-driven work, which is why we believe in technology as a job creator. As certain positions disappear, more new jobs are expected to surface, as has been the case with all waves of technology advancement over time."  

Robert Half Finance & Accounting offers the following tips for managers to ease worker anxiety around new technology:  

  • Provide training. Take advantage of new technology by upskilling staff. Investing in professional development increases the department's strength and the firm's success.  
  • Deploy change management. As companies adopt emerging technologies, managers need to communicate to staff what's being done and what it means for their jobs. Keep morale up by conveying key benefits of digital transformation. 
  • Offer stretch assignments. Remind workers of their value and leadership potential by engaging their talents in projects that encourage them to learn and build new skills.
