9th July 2019 | By Jan Cahill

In 2019 we find ourselves in a time of endless innovation; from iPhones to AI, the world of tech is constantly RPA Digital Workforcereleasing its latest product to the masses and changing the way we live. Technology now positively impacts every aspect of our lives, from the way we socialise with friends, to how we travel and even the way we work.  

The use of cutting-edge tech has become a part of everyday life and this is now being mirrored in the workplace. Nowhere more so than within human resource departments, where staff are exploring how HR services can be reimagined for the 21st century with the use of technology.

As the use of technology in the workplace continues to expand, more and more people are beginning to ask what this means for the future of the workforce. At Robocloud we know; and whilst some have been sceptical about the impact of tech on our workplace, this technology has the potential to improve the way we work in a myriad of ways. With the help of Robocloud, jobs are not replaced but enhanced, helping to achieve a streamlined business fit for the future.

Innovation is integral for modern companies and adopting technological advances in the workplace can help to act as an incubator for further innovation within businesses. Incorporating tech such as Robotic Process Automation (RPA) into the workforce enables companies to flourish in a way that wasn’t previously possible. As businesses innovate their processes with the help of RPA they can create a service which leaves, not just customers, but employees more satisfied.

Technology like RPA has been shown to improve productivity, increase efficiency and reduce costs. Offloading repetitive manual tasks to capable technology frees employees of such errands and leads to increased workplace satisfaction. As RPA removes the need for employees to complete monotonous tasks, the technology affords greater flexibility to the role of employees. This is integral to employee satisfaction and retention as, according to a 2018 study by Mercer, a massive 71% of thriving workers state that their job offers them flexibility. 

It is undeniable that as RPA continues to be adopted by companies it will contribute to the evolution of the workforce. As such tech is embraced by businesses it is predicted to lead to the development of the tech-enhanced worker. Meaning that, rather than being at odds with technology, employees will strive for peak performance by capitalising on these advances in tech.
