Machines taking over

Some estimates suggest that as much as 43 percent of all jobs currently existing will be automated by 2033, leading to millions of people in the workforce having to find new jobs.

So to give workers an indication of how much risk automation poses to them, the National Public Radio (NPR) website has released an interactive web tool that gives visitors an indication of how likely it is that a robot will one day do their jobs.

Legend of the SEEK: Helen Souness on knitting, testing and risk-taking

Helen Souness is the Kiwi marketing director responsible for managing SEEK, the hugely successful online trans-Tasman employment brand. She's based at the company's Melbourne HQ but regularly returns to New Zealand to develop and test campaigns and jumped back across the ditch last week to host a series of local marketing workshops and forums for SEEK’s diverse bunch of large and small advertisers, where she provided plenty of insights around how it became a celebrated employer and consumer brand.
