EMBRACE AUTOMATION

April 28th marks Work Health and Safety Day at Work — a great moment for food manufacturers worldwide to reflect on the well-being of their workforce. As the industry faces challenges from labor shortages to economic uncertainties, automation emerges as a source of resilience and opportunity. By prioritizing physical and mental health in the workplace by harnessing the benefits of automation, food manufacturers can foster a safer and more efficient work environment to elevate their business’ success.

Addressing Challenges with Automation

In the face of economic uncertainty, labor shortages, and supply chain disruptions, automation emerges as a strategic imperative for manufacturers to navigate the challenges. By investing in technology and automated end-to-end solutions, food manufacturers enable themselves to meet consumer demands, improve competitiveness and thereby capture more potential of their business.

Growth Forecast in Manufacturing: Allocate Manual Labor to Valuable Positions

The Deloitte Research Center for Energy & Industrials recently published their ‘2024 manufacturing industry outlook’ forecasting significant investment and growth in the US manufacturing industry in 2024. The report states that manufacturers continue to focus on building resilience across the organization by embracing new technology and automation to handle all the predicted challenges in the future. A report from Statista 2023 also predicts the global food production volume to increase by 19% within the next five years.

In addition to a predicted growth in the US manufacturing industry and global food production, recent studies from April 2024 by Deloitte and The Manufacturing Institute predicts a rise to 3.8 million unfilled positions in manufacturing by 2033. Manufacturing businesses struggle with attracting and retaining talent, with 65 percent of the respondents citing this as their primary concern. Both studies emphasize the importance of investing in flexible automated solutions and technologies for manufacturers to position themselves for success.

By adopting automated solutions, food manufacturers not only enhance resilience to address labor shortages but also empower the strategic allocation of manpower to more valuable positions.

Improve the Yield Rates (ROI) and Employee Satisfaction of Your Existing Workforce

Automation unlocks opportunities to enhance workforce efficiency in food manufacturing while simultaneously safeguarding the employee health and satisfaction. One of the significant contributors to workplace stress is the performance of monotonous and repetitive tasks. Manual labor in food manufacturing often involves routine activities that can lead to physical strain and mental exhaustion. However, by automating these tasks, companies can alleviate the burden on their workforce, allowing them to focus on more stimulating and fulfilling responsibilities.

Seizing the Opportunity for Positive Change

On World Day for Safety and Health at Work, we hope all food manufacturers seize the potential of automation to foster a safer, more ergonomic, and dynamic work environment. By prioritizing the well-being of your workforce and embracing automation technologies, your business will embark on a journey towards sustainable growth and success. For both your employees and your company’s success.
