It takes integrity, hard work, and thoughtful conversations with people experiencing the issues to understand what to do. To inspire real change, you need to make the case in many “languages”.

Is Your Company Considering Robotics? Find Out How To Get Started!

While robots aren’t likely to take over your job any time soon, it’s becoming more likely they’ll be taking over a lot of mundane individual tasks. The McKinsey® 2017 report Harnessing Automation for A Future that Works reveals that a small percentage of jobs—less than five percent globally—have the potential to become fully automated. However, 60 percent of all occupations have at least 30 percent of constituent tasks that could be automated. Robotics processing automation (RPA) is the use of software to carry out business processes that would normally be done by humans, with the goal of driving efficiencies and savings. RPA has been a significant game changer for organizations and can yield substantial operational benefits. By standardizing and simplifying processes, RPA can free employees from routine and repetitive administrative tasks so they can focus on more strategic pursuits. While many organizations are considering this technology and others are piloting it, it’s sometimes tough to figure out how to get started. Learn more by attending our ReImagine Series webinar...
