Automation isn’t new. After all, we’ve been automating since the first industrial revolution. But we’re in a new, intelligent era of automation that demands upskilling and cultural change.
Join Michael Priddis, founder and CEO of automation pioneer Faethm AI, and Claudia Crummenerl, Workforce and Organization Global Lead at Capgemini Invent, as they take us on a whirlwind tour of automation past, present and future. Hosted by Capgemini’s Liz Lugnier, this podcast looks at the impact of automation on the workforce and assesses ways in which the global pandemic has accelerated the adoption of intelligent automation.
Automation influences how we work, how we live, and how we lead our lives. The more enterprising organizations have already recognized its potential to augment their people, equipping them with the tools to work faster and more productively.
Michael and Claudia argue that the key to successful adoption of automation lies in taking your people on the automation journey with you. Consider the work that can be automated and create skills pathways for employees currently doing those jobs manually.
Offering industry use cases, they look at how automation is not something to be feared; rather it’s proven to keep people safe, boost productivity, and empower the modern workforce.
Listen to our podcast to hear more about the skills tomorrow’s workforce will need to benefit from automation.
