Much of the work of scheduling and coordination has been absorbed by employees. Also, easy to use design of calendars and automation of procurement and service coordination has rendered their jobs obsolete.

I had a job as a recruiting coordinator and I have to say it felt like I was a robot that my managers watched after only to fix malfunctions, never to give me something more to do or think about in life. If I had an idea to improve work flow or make the job easier for my team, the response was that my Service Level Agreement responsibilities came first. So with all those robotic responsibilities, I usually worked 5 hours of overtime a week just to get them done and I never for anything else. I feel bad for anyone with this kind of job because it is lowly and surely automation software will make it non-existant soon enough.
