With disruptions caused by COVID-19 and the oil price shock from 2020, Productivity initiatives are more important than ever.

So it was interesting to read a recent blog on ZDNet that suggests artificial intelligence and automation can give us “superpowers” and make us more productive. It offers a fascinating perspective on how important Digital Transformation is—especially to help companies stay productive during unexpected events—and how vital automation is to “augmenting human workers.”

The intersection of software and information allows end users to see incidents developing before they occur. Previously, companies were unable to make such a giant leap from the data they collected because the insights were trapped in silos.

Using Integrated Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance and risk management software, data and consulting services can help companies become more Sustainable throughout the supply chain and prevent incidents and near-misses that can lower operating costs, reduce inefficiencies and advance Operational Excellence.

With the enormous response we received from our Safety and Sustainability Summits that took place last year, we are excited to announce our new virtual Productivity Summit. The first track focuses on Operational Risk Management, and it takes place March 23 at 10 a.m. CT/4 p.m. GMT. The focus of the session will be using data to reduce asset downtime and risk exposure. Being able to do so is an essential component of enhancing Productivity throughout an organization. We invite you to register today.

We also have a Product Stewardship-related event planned for April and an Environmental, Health, Safety & Sustainability session scheduled for May. We’ll have more details on those in the coming weeks. Regardless of your focus, there’s something for everyone at Sphera’s Productivity Summit, so make your plans to attend them live or watch them on-demand after the events take place.

Being able to achieve Operational Excellence in those areas will help you see your Productivity go up, up and away.
