Preparing our Workforce and Process for Industry 4.0

With a growing cohort of millennials in the workforce, factories are evolving to smart factories of the future. With smart factories, there is an increase in demand for highly skilled roles to enhance and maintain its automated processes in order to increase productivity and maintain a competitive edge whilst the demand for physically demanding or routine jobs will decrease. Given the complete change in the logistics ecosystem, it is imperative to prepare the workforce for the future.
