Nikolas Badminton Discusses Taking the Human out of H.R

Posted By on March 30, 2016

Nikolas Badminton, Futurist, is a regular contributor to Lynda Steele’s CKNW Drive Time show talking about a number of future-forward items from The Future of Work, The Sharing Economy, Privacy, and other items of public interest.

In this episode – CKNW, Lynda Steele Show – March 29: Taking the Human out of H.R, – Nikolas brings along Nick Black, Managing Partner with Intensions Consulting to talk about their latest joint study on the Future of Work.

The study, which surveyed 2299 adults across Canada, found that a quarter (26%) of Canadian adults believe an unbiased computer program would be more trustworthy and ethical than their workplace leaders and managers. Among younger adults (those aged 20-39) that number was significantly higher, with 31% agreeing that an unbiased computer program would be more trustworthy and ethical than their workplace leaders and managers.

“This study has uncovered a number of interesting and potentially challenging trends for the future of work in Canada,” says Nick Black, Managing Partner at Intensions Consulting. “For younger adults, who have grown up trusting and relying on technology, there seems to be a growing preference for automated leadership and management.”
