More Companies and Employees Actively Discussing AI, Based on Studies
According to a study conducted by the business and career development platform LinkedIn, many employees actually see artificial intelligence (AI) as an “invisible teammate.”
The number of job postings that mention the words “GPT” or “ChatGPT” has increased 21 times since November 2022, the month ChatGPT was launched—based on a study conducted by LinkedIn. This just goes to show that more and more companies as well as employees are talking about artificial intelligence (AI).
These days, AI has integrated itself into numerous industries, and many have seen the business opportunities that it presents. Many companies have used AI to improve the efficiency of the systems and processes within their business, too!
Atul Harkisanka, the platform’s Head of Growth Markets and Country Lead for the Philippines says that a survey they conducted shows that 85% of professionals actually see AI as an “invisible teammate.” This is because AI can take on mundane tasks at work.
Benefits of Having AI as an ‘Invisible Teammate’
What will having AI take on day-to-day tasks mean for employees? Since AI is around to deal with mundane, simple tasks, employees can now work on other tasks or allocate time for networking, upskilling, or even rest and relaxation.
“It will mean that the professionals will now have a higher work-life balance, will have increased job satisfaction, [and] freed up time,” says Harkisanka, according to a report. “Now this freed up time can then be invested in learning new job skills and strengthening their professional networks, which in turn actually benefits the companies they work for.”
How Businesses Can Partner with AI
AI has been a hotly debated topic in the last few years, particularly when it comes to people losing their employment because AI has taken their place. However, when used right, AI can become an asset in doing business, especially as it can work hand-in-hand with people for more efficient work.
For one thing, AI can ease the burden people feel at work by taking on certain tasks. It can make processes more efficient and convenient, which in turn will benefit both employees and employers.
At the end of the day, whether or not AI is advantageous or disadvantageous boils down to two things. One of which is the intention and why it is being used. The second is the execution or how it is being used. And on a positive note, AI can really be that “invisible partner” when used properly.
