The purpose of the article is to study the transformations, consequences of automation, new vectors of development of state policy in the field of labor, etc. in the labor market of Ukraine. Methodology. The work uses such research methods as systematization and classification of theoretical approaches to the interpretation of the concept of "digital transformation", analysis and synthesis of the positive and negative impact of digital transformation on employment and the labor market, systematization of the main waves of the automation process and its impact on the labor market in the context of digitalization. The survey results showed that the formation of the digital economy is a leading trend in the modern world and a key factor in economic growth. Digitalization of society entails the following social consequences: 1) an increase in the number of people employed in the information sphere (producers, processors, distributors of information); 2) intellectualization of many types of work and, as a result, increased requirements for general education and vocational training; the emergence of completely new professions that require qualifications in the digital economy; 3) the extinction of existing professions (especially in connection with the robotization of many working professions and the introduction of artificial intelligence systems). Information technology and robotics have contributed to a radical change in the labor market. Young people are already facing the risk of losing their jobs due to automation. The redistribution of current tasks between people and machines is already happening in companies. Business and government should work together to help people learn how to use new technologies and reduce the negative impact of automation. Practical implications. The impact of digital technologies on various sectors of the economy will have a positive impact only if the state is actively involved in preventing the growth of problems in the labor market caused by digitalization. Thus, information systems will contribute to the transformation of educational and cultural institutions into serious information centers. Value/originality. The paper provides a justification for the strategic priorities of labor market regulation in terms of strengthening the country's competitive position in the transition to a digital economy.
