Robotics can solve the shortage of employees in Poland. Such an investment can turn to companies during the year.
Robotics can have a positive impact on the level of wages in the Polish economy and solve the problem of shortage of employees, which inhibits the development of companies. An investment in industrial robots, depending on the industry, costs from several hundred thousand to one million zlotys, but in general they pay very quickly – even after a year or two, increasing the efficiency and competitiveness of the company. Thanks to this, it reduces costs and provides additional revenues. In Poland, the majority of such devices work in the automotive, chemical and metal industries.
The historically low unemployment that has been in place for months hampers the development of companies that are struggling with the lack of hands to work. Demand for qualified employees exceeds supply, which may even negatively affect economic growth in the black scenario.
Among the possible solutions to this problem, the automation of robotic processes is mentioned. The consultancy firm’s experts indicate that organizations that have decided to implement this technology early achieve significant benefits such as greater efficiency and lower costs. This is an opportunity for companies that can not yet count on a greater supply of professionals or increase wages indefinitely.
The Polish economy is struggling with the lack of people willing to perform works that can be robotic. In addition, we are constantly fighting for wages in the Polish economy to grow. This can be stimulated by legislation, while robotization can also have a very positive impact on this aspect.
Ultimately, robots can replace one-fifth of full-time employees. On the other hand, they allow the company to increase revenues. The analysis shows that if large companies (employing over 50,000 people, with annual revenues above USD 20 billion) would entrust the robot with 20 percent tasks, they would have earned $ 30 million additional income per year. This is reflected in the example of South Korea, one of the fastest-growing economies in the world, where for 10.000 employees have an average of 530 robots – compared to 32 robots per 10.000 for all industries in Poland.
