Staff shortage continues

Staff shortage is a global problem that is forcing many companies to rethink the way they work. In the Netherlands, companies in various sectors report an increase in the difficulty of finding suitable staff. According to recent figures from the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS), there were as many as 133 vacancies for every 100 unemployed in the first quarter of 2024. This record number of vacancies underlines the need to explore alternative solutions.

Automation as lifesaver

Automation is increasingly cited as a possible solution to this pressing problem. By automating repetitive and time-consuming tasks, companies can work more efficiently with available staff. This not only eases the workload, but can also increase productivity.
