Tweet of the week

Quote of the week

As Professor Daniel Cable at London Business School and author of Alive at Work, comments: “Humans aren’t built for routine and repetition. We are designed to crave exploration, experimentation and learning.””

Bruno Ferreira, Area Vice President for UK & Ireland, UiPath, explores how Automation may in-fact bolster employment, rather than disrupt it.
