With the Great Resignation in full swing, employers are often faced with a difficult choice. They can either expand hiring practices to properly staff their business, or confront the increased operating costs associated with combatting turnover. Being understaffed means lost efficiency and increased likelihood of burnout—but hiring, training, and retaining new employees comes with its own risks and added expenses. Luckily, this situation is not a binary choice, and there is another option.
Robotic Process Automation (RPA) by Blue Ocean Strategic Partners offers a way to automate many of the mundane and repetitive tasks that consume a large part of employee work-days.
This solution can have far reaching implications.
RPA helps lower turnover and improve retention because when people have time to focus on the more engaging and important aspects of their job, they have greater opportunity to put their skills and passion to work—encouraging innovation and incentivizing loyalty. This not only helps to increase the productivity of your existing employees, but it reduces your hiring needs as RPA takes care of the often derided but equally necessary “busy work”.
The added benefit of robotic automation for “busy work” is a massive increase to data input and recurrent checks to ensure accuracy, reducing the possibility of human error. A robot doesn’t make mistakes and doesn’t take time off, so you can rest assured that it is always working at peak efficiency. This feeling of a weight off your shoulders can allow your business to accomplish significantly more pressing assignments in a shorter amount of time. The end result is increased efficiency across the board, and a business that is better able to scale without needing to add additional employees.
RPA is a more affordable option than adding a new person to the business, and a robot doesn’t need to be trained or recruited to start making headway. Businesses across the US are already benefiting from the increased efficiency and reduced operating costs provided by Robotic Process Automation, but to see how RPA can grow your business, contact Blue Ocean Strategic Partners.
