How Drones Are Affecting Staffing and Outsourcing
Drones are one of the newest things that are going to impact the world in a major way in the coming years. The best aspect of drones is that they will generate jobs for thousands of people because as the use of drones grow, so will the need for trained unmanned vehicle pilots will increase dramatically.
The military has been using drones for decades now and there is a deficiency of trained unmanned vehicle pilots and they are relying on the outsourcing of their works to the companies that supply these trained pilots.
These pilots are not carrying out any work on their own they are continuously monitored and just follow the orders. These pilots are civilians who are carrying out the orders of the military officials who do not have the expertise of flying drones. This arrangement is working well for the military and is here to stay for a while until the military recruits soldiers who are experts in flying drones. Right now the military has just over 1300 unmanned vehicle pilots employed with them but the search is on, as this is not enough to fill the demand.
It is not just the military where there is a need of drone pilots or the unmanned vehicle pilots. When the FAA publishes rules and regulations regarding drones most of the companies will deliberately try to cut off the number of staff they currently have and replace them with robotic systems like drones. This will improve not only the efficiency of the product delivery but also improve upon the savings of the company.
There are going to be over 7000 companies that will be flying drones as soon as FAA comes out with its new rules and regulations. This will not take time and will happen very soon for there will huge demand for pilots who know how to fly drones. The companies that will require these pilots will be:
· Construction companies
· Real estate companies
· Photography companies
· Land surveyors
· Vineyard owners
This is just the beginning because every field is finding a use for drones. The major use of drones is also going to be witnessed in the sports industry where drones will be used for filming the sporting events. This field will majorly outsource the work because it is not only the major channels like ESPN that need to cover the events but also the teams that will need to film their practice sessions to figure out the strong points and the weaknesses of the team that can be worked upon.
It’s predicted that jobs open up once drones are used on a commercial basis. The staffing and outsourcing will take a big turn due to this new technology and the kids who are seen as wasting their time playing videogames will become the most sought out people in the industry.
