If you sit in an office looking at a screen for a living, your job will be replaced by an automated process as soon as someone writes a scriptable workflow process to assume those duties. I regularly deal with decision makers who say - If you can replace an employee with a system that only costs twice as much as their annual burden rate, I can sign off on it tomorrow. Three times or more than salary and benefits takes a few weeks for approval. Maybe it won't be one robot process that takes your place, but over time all your job are belong to us. One of the sales reps I work with puts it like this - I can provide you with an idiot savant who can only do 12 things, but do them with absolute accuracy and repeat-ability three shift a day 365 days a year with no benefits, over time or vacation, and who would never call in sick or have a sick child. How much will you pay?
Take every thing you do every day and write down the steps to accomplish them. If you can write them down they can be automated. Today its the routine AR processing and check writing, tomorrow its the scan/capture/index/search/retrieve/respond portion. Then the iPad based receptionist or the first & second level help desk support. Outside of the office there are initiatives like the push to automate over the road truck driving so move to the driving of the delivery trucks to the replaced list. Maybe it can't fully replace an employee, but reducing 1/3 of a workload from 4 people is often better. Once the number of people in the office drops 75% they drop the coffee service and the frequency of sandwich delivery at lunch goes from 3 times a week to 3 times a month so those jobs get cut as well. Sure someone probably has to ride the cherry picker up to bolt the sign on the post for the local mega mart, but how many of those jobs are there?
