Human Centric Industry 4.0: how to achieve a technology enabled workforce

Date: 29 April
Location: Online

Join us for our upcoming webinar titled: ‘Human Centric Industry 4.0: how to achieve a technology enabled workforce’, taking place Thursday, 29 April at 16:00 (BST). 

For many, Industry 4.0 and digital transformation is about technology and operations. However, at the beginning, middle and end of each of these lines is a real person doing real work to get product into the hands of end users.

Digital transformation impacts those shop floor workers often in a profound way by providing tools, data and instructions to be more effective and efficient. Yet according to the World Economic Forum, 75% of digital transformation projects don’t go as planned.

Ensuring technology deployments proceed as expected ultimately comes down to the level of engagement of the workforce.

Join us to hear how front-line workers at the world’s best companies, such as Brembo (Brakes) and Lacroix Electronics, have been the backbone for digital transformation in this unprecedented COVID era.


This discussion will focus on two main topics:

1. How workers have adapted to new working conditions with mobility, flexibility, collaboration and remote work opportunities enabled by digital transformation initiatives.

2. How companies are able to use digital transformation to improve efficiency up and down the manufacturing process.

Further Discussion Points:

  • What’s the “new normal” on the shop floor – what are front line workers dealing with as a result of COVID and how are they dealing with them?
  • What technological solutions have been the most impactful for them?
  • What’s the best way to involve and engage the shop floor on a digital transformation?
