With technology advancing more rapidly than ever, it is hard to keep track of the latest new computer game. let alone the huge advances being made in industries. But now is this effecting the workplace with technology and machines taking the place of humans? It is now becoming increasingly hard to fing a job for life. Some argue that industries are more productive and efficient than ever before, whilst others remain more skeptical of the advances.

In recent years, there have been many technological innovations. Alot of them, such as the computers, the robots and the machines have put people out of a job. To tell you the truth, I can not urge that the development of technology eliminates the jobs bacause innovations do not fire people but bosses do! I believe that there must be a cooperation between technology and people. So, the companies have to use technology and people in a balanced way. I am saying that for many reasons.

First of all, technological innovations make workers more efficient and productive. That happens bacause when people use the technology, they work rapidly, effectively and profitably. So, people who have skills to use the technology gainfully and have a desire to be better, they will have no fear of replacement.

On the other side, when the technology is used ineffectively, it leads to the elimination of jobs and work insecurity. As a result, joblessness is increased by replacing people in many workplaces. For example, a software which is offered free on the net can replace people!

In conclusion, for all the above reasons, I believe that the managers and all of us in our everyday life have to use the advanced technology for the best!
