Isn’t it funny when your personal life and work life intersect in places you would never expect? My wife and I recently made the decision to "cut the cord" and get rid of cable. Because of this decision, I’ve been spending a lot of time binge watching shows on Netflix, Amazon Prime and Hulu. One show I’ve gotten really into lately is called Mr. Robot on USA. If you haven’t watched the show, I highly recommend it. The entire first season is on Amazon Prime.

Think for a moment about your personal definition of productivity. Words like "effectiveness" and "output" and "production" likely come to mind. But what we often forget in material handling is that productivity doesn’t have to mean harder work. In fact, in manufacturing operations and distribution facilities, higher productivity often means less demanding physical work, employee touches, and interactions between product and personnel.
