Global Study of Executives Reveals How AI Is Transforming Work

The artificial intelligence revolution is leaving employers searching for workers with the skills needed to support technological advances in the workplace, according to a new study of senior executives from Fortune 2000 companies by the World Employment Confederation/FT Longitude.

According to the “The Work We Want” study of hundreds of senior executives from Fortune 2000 companies, 81% of business leaders believe that AI and other tech disruptions will force organizations to radically rethink skills and human resources in their workforce—and 78% of those same executives are concerned that they will be unable to train employees fast enough to keep pace with tech developments in the next three years.

“AI and automation are rapidly changing all of our lives, and employers and employees are struggling to keep up,” said Richard Wahlquist, chief executive officer at the American Staffing Association. “The staffing industry is committed to helping to meet the global upskilling challenge and imperative head on in the U.S. and around the world.”

“The Work We Want is a conversation starter for governments, employers, and workers to address our new work reality and find solutions—collectively—to deliver better labor market outcomes for all,” said Denis Pennel, the managing director of the World Employment Confederation.
