BrandPost: How Automation Can Help You Attract and Retain a Better Workforce

High salaries, foosball tables, nap pods, free food: The rewards that companies assume will attract and retain talented and committed employees range from the traditional to the trendy. However, many of the most valuable workers are less motivated by money or perks than by factors such as  recognition, challenges, empowerment, and a sense of being part of something bigger than themselves.

But using automation to help reduce the tedious parts of their jobs  can eliminate frustration and help build a company culture that makes time for innovation —   and a company where employees want to stay.
