Sumary of ‘Happy people are more productive’: putting an end to repetitive tasks with workplace automation:
- “Traditionally, they’re all done manually, which means when someone joins an organisation, it could be days, if not weeks, before they actually get going on the job they’re there to do,” says Hardy.
- This is the name for a range of enterprise technology that sits about halfway between working manually, and full-blown artificial intelligence (AI).
- “A task can be very easily automated using robotic process automation,” says Dr Samiya Khan, post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Wolverhampton, who explains how this automation transformed the processes of an IT services company she worked with.
- It had previously devoted extensive time and resources to manually sorting log files received via email into an analytics platform.
