ROCKFORD, Ill., May 8, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- We are all aware that technology is reshaping the economy – and now the workforce. It provides opportunities for companies to see their way through the ever-present workforce challenge.
The onset of Industry 4.0 / the technology revolution introduced many resources as a solution for the workforce challenge that many are facing. These resources are an innovative and creative way to improve the workforce efficiency and productivity. Examples of such innovations include:
Also known as cobots, these machines are designed to give small and mid-size manufacturers all the benefits of advanced robotic automation, without the costs and risks associated. Cobots work side-by-side with employees and not as replacements. Adopting cobots allows for automation of mundane, repetitive and manual tasks, which frees up employees to focus on more engaging tasks that result in better quality work and increased job satisfaction.
Training Within Industry (TWI)
Leaders need to be able to get people to do their work – when and how it needs to be done – in order for operations to run smoothly. This requires a skillset that can be learned and nurtured until they can be put into practice. Although not new, TWI provides team leads and front line supervisors with the tools to lead, instruct and improve how jobs are done. It is a systematic approach to sustain changes and continuously improve work across departments in an organization.
Video Work Instruction
The days of paper and picture work instructions are long gone. Incorporating video work instructions in your training curriculum is a safe and efficient way to teach tasks and reduce the need for existing staff to provide training. The technology provides hands-on experience as new technicians learn the step-by-step best practices to complete tasks, allowing them to perform highly specialized tasks just as well as senior technicians.
Employee Engagement Surveys
Do you know how your employees truly feel about your organization? An Employee Engagement Survey reveals this and other insightful information that allows organizations to make workforce and cultural improvements that result in engaged employees and increased retention rate.
At the Workforce and Technology Symposium on June 4, attendees will be introduced to technologies, tools and various trainings to expand the productivity of your workforce. The event will go into further details on these workforce development opportunities, along with a hands-on demonstration of the technologies.
