Abstract

This study addresses the emergence of robots in the organizational setting and its potential effects it has on employment of humans. Paper proposes that while scholarship offered solutions to address the “robotization” of the workforce, we still know little about the negative effects of introducing robots in everyday functioning of the organizations. Thereby, this paper argues that rising energy costs and raw materials prices will play a factor in the comparison of human cost versus the robots’ cost in the workplace.

Keywords: robots, energy, technological unemployment
