Abstract

This study analyses how digitalisation is associated with changing employment patterns, job requirements and working conditions in law, tax consulting and audit firms. Using representative data from an employer survey, we provide initial empirical evidence. According to their own statements, the above-mentioned professional services firms exhibit above-average activity in driving the digitalisation of their processes. Overall, no immediate job losses can be observed. However, the data indicate that, compared to other sectors, digitalisation in professional services firms is disproportionately associated with stressful working conditions for newly hired employees.
