Warehouse workers are getting harder to find, hire and retain. What do they really want?
Lucas Systems has released new research on “Competing for the Warehouse Workforce of the Future.” Part of Lucas’s ongoing series of insights into “The Voice of the Warehouse Worker,” the study set out to determine just what that particular individual’s priorities are when it comes to choosing where to work. On this episode, we delve into the details with Ken Ramoutar, chief marketing officer of Lucas. Some of the contents might surprise you, if you think that wages are the single biggest driver behind worker retention, or that the mission of robots is to drive humans out of the distribution center altogether. We also discuss the preferences of Gen Z, and how warehouses can attract this young, tech-savvy labor force. Hosted by Bob Bowman, Editor-in-Chief of SupplyChainBrain.
