Bis Henderson Recruitment understand that the nature of order fulfilment in eCommerce is changing radically, and with it, the demands placed upon the human resources needed to manage and support it – so much so that we developed a detailed whitepaper to discuss the effects of automation; new sill-sets required, changing roles, motivation techniques needed and shifting recruitment practice shifting to meet demand. With insights from John Munnelly, Head of Operations at John Lewis and Ian Sheppard, Supply Chain Director at Connect Books it makes for an interesting read.
That’s why we are delighted to see our whitepaper ‘Getting to grips with the human aspects of automated eFulfilment’ on the front cover of the UKWA’s January issue of their Warehouse Magazine, along with four pages covering the topic inside.
With additional comments from our own Andy Kaye, Mark Botham, Leigh Anderson and Neil Adcock the whitepaper gives some key insights into how businesses should be elevating, and not eliminating their staff in the shift to automated warehousing distribution.
