Further technological development affects the quality of our work, both now and in thefuture. Further mechanisation and automation in the form of increasing robotisation canlead to shifts in the amount of work, in the nature of that work, and in the skills thatpeople need in order to perform their work. In the following knowledge synthesis, we offeran overview of the effects of robotisation on the quality of work, and of the developmentsthat are expected in this area.
