There’s a big disconnect when it comes to technology in the workplace. Employers and employees around the world are presenting disparate feelings about the continuing rise of AI in the workplace.
According to our 2019 Talent Trends research, 81% of employers say they are excited about the possibilities that AI will bring to their companies. Working professionals, however, are far more skeptical – with 44% concerned about job loss due to tech, and 65% saying they will seek additional training to remain competitive.
“The global skills gap will make it harder and more costly to hire talent with the skills a company needs,” says Rebecca Henderson, CEO of Randstad Sourceright. “The best talent is going to acquire those needed skills, even if they have to do so at their own expense, and smart companies will be the ones that proactively provide training to their workers.”
