WFH Means Some White Collar Jobs Can be Outsourced

When the Jobs Are Not Available - Tekedia

Those working from home may be concerned about pressure to return to the office, but there is another threat lurking on the horizon. If high-paying white collar jobs can be done remotely, outsourcing them to cheaper areas could save organizations money, Fortune writes. Experts have predicted a post-COVID surge in so-called "telemigration." But recent data also show the highest-paying jobs are often the ones most easily done remotely. With the biggest gains in WFH going to knowledge workers during the pandemic, the threat may loom largest for them now. Advances in AI and machine-learning are enabling more computers to replace white collar workers, too. (LinkedIn News)
