50% of the world’s workforce is located in India, Southeast Asia, and the GCC nations, but on average more than 60% of this workforce is still unorganised. Problems have resulted from this all along the value chain. Due to the fact that less than 3% of the frontline workforce is formally skilled, enterprise efficiency is 20–25% below ideal and there is a labour shortage of more than 20%.

Additionally, due to the rapidly shifting dynamics of the global workforce, businesses are unable to tap into the full potential of their workforces, which limits their ability to expand. Less than 15% of businesses have digitised their workforce operations, so modernization and digitization are now essential for all businesses worldwide to fully realise this potential. The only way to complete this enormous task is with the aid of technology and AI.
