Augmented Worker

Create Enhanced Workers

Over the last years, the declining automation cost led many companies to fall in the over-automation enticement as the labor costs have increased due to skilled manpower scarcity. Besides, the ageing active population and the demands of the new generations are pushing employers in opposite directions.

To tackle these problems, companies need to augment, instead of replace, the workers. They should deploy technologies that allow the employees to focus on the most value-adding activities, where the unique human skills of decision-making and adaptability to new situations brings most value and, at the same time, create a more attractive workplace, where employees enjoy a working routine which is less repetitive, but more interesting, diversified, and productive
