Our work shapes our lives. We dedicate a third of our living time to it. There are billions of people working on the globe, so work is an essential component of our society.
A Smartsheet report found that 40% of workers spend less than 25% of their workweek doing manual, repetitive tasks. Email, data collection, and data entry take up the majority of this time. Worldwide, only a third of employees have access to Intelligent Automation apps or tools for collaboration.
Companies have been focusing on customer experience for the past ten years. The term “employee experience” is just starting to be acknowledged. According to an article in the Harvard Business Review, companies that lead initiatives to improve employee experience are four times as profitable as those that don’t. Therefore, improving the employee experience through IA is an opportunity.
How can we solve these challenges using Intelligent Automation?
These are the five big levers that world leaders can use to build the future of work with Intelligent Automation:
IA allows us to identify better work opportunities. You can take the Fitbit and smartwatches as an example. IA provides personalized dashboards that permit analysis of our work-life balance, reduce stress and, improve our professional behavior. Intelligent Automation also allows you to keep track of your professional activities. It can suggest breaks for meetings or even recommend automating repetitive tasks.
IA can identify and automate large parts of routine and time-consuming tasks, allowing you to concentrate on activities that have higher added value and makes them more enjoyable. IA can create a Microsoft PowerPoint presentation for a weekly meeting, track invoices in accounting software, or help with email management.
Intelligent Automation improves the value of your work. IA, for example, allows you to analyze millions upon millions of data points in just a fraction of a second, helping the decision-making process. We can use Intelligent Automation to promote remote collaboration and team collaboration as well as identify opportunities for retraining
Some of the tasks we do at work are not in line with best practices and can be detrimental to our professional lives. It is vital to limit the number of meetings and the volume of emails.
The key to the future of work is connecting employees, companies, market players, and others more closely. IA can help increase connections between employers and job seekers. IA can foster and increase sociability among employees, which will allow them to be more caring about their coworkers.
