Warehouse Workers Physically Spent - Eye Tech For Empowerment
June 30, 2022
workers value technology so much that they are willing to take a pay cut
and switch jobs to use tech to help them do their jobs better.
75% of workers say physical strain in their jobs takes a larger toll on them than the mental strain. The leading cause of physical strain is carrying and/or lifting followed by walking and/or traveling.
Top causes of mental strain include meeting performance or incentive goals and objectives (25%) and safely maneuvering around the warehouse (20%).
Workers see robots as productive allies but fear increased quotas. More than 2 in 5 believe robots will reduce physical stress (46%) or help them achieve better speed in item picking (44%) or better accuracy (40%).
In the study, workers perceived their company’s technology as an
investment in them.
Bob Bova the President and CEO of AccuSpeechMobile added, "Workers in the warehouse and distribution centers are really beginning to understand how much technology can help them be more productive and efficient, leading to better remuneration. Solutions that include wearables like the Zebra HD4000 combined with device based voice automation integrated by AccuSpeechMobile can provide the positive experience for the workers while bolstering the reputation of the company that deploys it to put their people first."
