What is the biggest challenge you face on the job, and how are you managing it?
In INDIAN context the skill and attitude of the general employee is still way below as compared to advanced country and lacks productivity. In this direction we are attempting to coach people to upgrade and change their behavior which will benefit them in long run with increase in remuneration.

Robot and Automation will bring in many changes that will make redundant the manpower resources on shop-floor.

Convincing companies to pay higher cost with returns in efficiency and productivity will also remain a challenge.
