Final report - Technological change and the future of work
31 March 2020
The Government asked The New Zealand Productivity Commission to undertake an inquiry into technological change, disruption and the future of work.
The inquiry focused on two questions. What will technological change mean for work and employment? And how can New Zealand best position itself to take advantage of opportunities that could arise from technological change? The inquiry was prompted by recent advances in specific technologies, such as artificial intelligence and robotics, that some believe are starting to replace human labour on a wide scale.
