Why innovation and creativity go hand in hand
All throughout AbbVie, there are employees who celebrate birthdays but never eat any cake. Employees who have email addresses and ID numbers, but you won’t ever see them in the cafeteria lunch lines.
AbbVie’s Business Technology Solutions team have begun building and deploying robotic process automation bots, or technology that mimics human actions to take on some of the time-consuming busywork and give humans more time to focus on complex work. Even though they’re not physical robots, that doesn’t mean teams don’t get attached. AbbVie bots are known to have their own names, bot-themed birthday parties and sometimes, a personality outside of work.
