As automation matures, companies engaged in the space are putting more thought into the ethical role they play as they grow. To this end, RPA software technology Automation Anywhere has created the position of Social Impact Officer. The San Jose, Calif.-based organization has tapped one of its co-founders to fill the role. Automation Anywhere said, in the new role, Neeti Mehta Shukla will focus on how automation can be a “global force for good.”
