The Role of a Frontline-Workforce Platform in Attracting and Retaining Workers

A recent post from Accenture points out that there were 10.1 million job openings in America as of August 2022 and that attracting frontline workers remained a major challenge for businesses.

It seems almost paradoxical that most workers are looking for extra work to cover inflation while most organizations claim to have workforce shortages and are making active efforts to engage new people while trying their best to retain existing workers. The data presented shows that these organizations aren’t doing enough to attract and retain talent. Accenture highlights how this situation can be improved and how, by making certain changes, even smaller companies can develop thriving, capable, and technologically forward-looking workforces that deliver the best possible KPI results.

Understanding 2023 Tech Trends:

Manufacturers have invested massively in technology and automation since the start of the pandemic in order to confront the challenges that accompanied this global phenomenon. Now, at the beginning of 2023, high inflation and market volatility have hit businesses hard, and companies are prioritizing digital tech and process automation investments, with some companies cutting their initial investments.

The Importance of Training and Assistance in Industrial Manufacturing

Mar 15, 2023 10:00:49 AM . Julia Walsh

Global manufacturing is going through a fundamental and transformational phase, with the inclusion of advanced automation, artificial intelligence, and Industry 4.0 IT applications completely changing the way things are done on the traditional shop floor. This large-scale change necessitates that manufacturing training and assistance must also transform as paper-based training manuals and work instructions become obsolete.

The new training era is more hands-on, experiential, real-life, and result oriented. Such training and assistance use Industry 4.0 technology to prepare the frontline and acquaint them with highly specific tasks and production standards using AR, VR, and video-based instructions. However, in order to successfully transform current training practices it is critical to choose the right implementation partners and have a clear vision of what the transformed training paradigm would look like!  

Understanding Training 4.0:

Without Training 4.0 it will be difficult, if not impossible, for companies to realize the full potential of Industry 4.0. Training 4.0 uses the same digital transformation technology gamut deployed for Industry 4.0 to better train the current and future frontline. The goal is to preserve organizational know-how and have a faster worker qualification turnaround for quicker deployment on the shop floor and fewer production-related errors.
