The pandemic is leaving a lasting impact on our working lives. Significant numbers of people have been made redundant across the globe, but millions more have intentionally left their jobs in search of new opportunities.
This trend is having a big impact on companies that rely heavily on manual work, like those in the food and beverage sector. In the UK alone, it’s predicted that these businesses will need to find an additional 140,000 workers by 2024 to ensure they can continue to operate. And globally, one billion people will need to be reskilled by 2030 across all sectors, including F&B.
Companies need a cost-effective, space-saving solution that circumvents issues such as worker recruitment and retention, skills shortages, fluctuations in productivity and health and safety concerns. That’s where cobots come in.
