How Digital Workers Can Pick Up the Slack as Birth Rates Decline


The Challenge of Declining Birth Rates

Since 2008, birth rates have been declining, which may cause concerns in several areas, including the business sector. To begin, according to an article in the Atlanta Business Chronicle published in February 2023, higher education leaders are anticipating an enrollment cliff. This will result in a projected decline of 15% in college students by 2025. The effects of this decline will not be limited to universities, of course. It is expected to later result in a workforce cliff and potential labor shortage. Today’s workforce comprises two relatively large generations- baby boomers and millennials- with the smaller Generation X in the middle. Moving forward, two smaller generations will sandwich the millennials, resulting in a significant population gap in the workforce.

The Role of Automation in Addressing Workforce Challenges

To address this challenge, businesses will need to explore new ways of optimizing their workforce and operations. One potential solution is automation. Repetitive and rule-based tasks that typically require human workers can be automated. This will reduce the workload of human employees and free them up to focus on value-added activities. This approach would allow businesses to reduce the required number of human employees while also addressing the issue of lost workdays and time wasted by employees who are not engaged in their jobs.

Introducing Digital Workers

Digital Workers, our name for Robotic Process Automation (RPA), are one type of automation that can be deployed across many industries. They can automate a wide range of tasks, including data entry, report generation, and even more complex jobs such as customer support and email management. By handing these over to Digital Workers, businesses reduce the time and manpower needed for their operations, making them more equipped to face a labor shortage when the time comes.

Moreover, repetitive tasks cause companies to lose thousands of workdays annually. Up to 20% of employees report wasting time due to disengagement in their jobs, which further exacerbates the issue. However, by implementing Digital Workers, businesses can automate these monotonous tasks. This allows employees to concentrate on more stimulating and rewarding work, ultimately leading to higher job satisfaction and increased overall organizational efficiency.

Digital Workers can be deployed across many industries, including healthcare, hospitality, and manufacturing. Centelli’s Digital Workers are suitable for any task that doesn’t necessitate decision-making. They are designed to work non-stop and without breaks, ensuring consistent performance and heightened accuracy compared to human workers.
