The current labor shortage is especially acute in the warehousing and distribution segment, where business is growing exponentially, and demand for on-floor workers is at an all-time high.
While much has been said and shared on this topic, there has been little voice that has come directly from the perspective of the on-floor warehouse worker. Lucas Systems recently commissioned a study of 500 on-floor warehouse workers across the U.S. The study uncovers how workers feel about stress, the need for technology, and working with robots.
Some of the insights might surprise you:
3 of 4 trade pay for better tech to do their jobs
Workers want to stay at their jobs but feel improvements are a necessity
90% believe tech is critical driver employee attraction and retention
3 out of 4 workers say robots are friends not foes in the warehouse
