Lucas Insights: Voice of the Warehouse Worker
Lucas Systems commissioned a study of 500 on-floor warehouse workers across the US. The study uncovers how workers feel about stress, the need for technology, and working with robots. Key findings included:
74% of workers are willing to trade pay for better tech to do their jobs
Nearly 3 in 4 (74%) warehouse workers are at least somewhat likely to take a pay cut to work at another company with more technology tools to help them do their job, including more than half (52%) who are extremely or very likely. This is driven by younger workers, with 81% of workers in the Gen Z group being at least somewhat likely to trade pay for tech. This is certainly a signal to DC operators and leaders that workers are after quality measures in addition to quantity measures, like pay, when it comes to their jobs.
