How is technology going to continue impacting the workplace in the near future? How can we retain the human element of a company? Is employee engagement a passing fad?

And if not, they need to be.
Part 1: Automation: Blazing Trails or Destroying Jobs?
In some areas, automation is seen as a godsend by people. Rather than have to wait for a cashier to work through a queue of people in a supermarket, shoppers can head to a row of self-help machines, where waiting time is dramatically shortened. Mass production has never been so prominent thanks to machines working off an assembly line, manufacturing large quantities of products. In some restaurants, rather than wait for a courteous waiter to be available to take your order, you can simply type it in at the bar to be automatically sent into the digital air.

Now, while it'd be handy if staff could just download all relevant information into their brains, that notion is a good few decades off.
