Put Artificial Intelligence to work for you

More and more workplaces are now fully embracing the digital age by introducing AI to their processes, propelling an era of transformative change. AI is undoubtedly revolutionising the way we work, and this is a trend we want to get on board with.

For those of us who grew up entranced by the sci-fi movement and the futuristic images it paraded across our screens, AI rang an exciting bell when it started infiltrating our lives not too long ago. The image of a worker putting their feet up and letting a ‘machine’ do their work is a fun one in theory; but what is the reality behind allowing AI to enter our working spaces and lives? Can AI help us work better?

Several concerns have been raised over the years about not only the ethical aspects of AI, but also the more practical issue of what will actually become of our jobs. However, AI is expected to create more jobs than those it will take away, in addition to leading to significantly more advanced working experiences, and not only in the technological sense of the word.

AI for more streamlined, engaging and enriching work environments

Companies across a wide variety of sectors are now employing AI to improve a broad range of processes, from better planning their space to hiring new staff and ensuring worker safety on premises.  

Where do you, as a worker, stand with using AI? Here are some of the benefits:

  • You will have more time for more meaningful and strategic work, leading to more impactful results. AI tools such as Docugami, Notably and Tome help you better organise and share your documents, conduct more effective business research and create better presentations, thus freeing up time for deeper work.
  • This extra time will help you unleash your creativity, inspiring new ideas and insights.
  • And those insights you don’t have to gain on your own; by removing administrative tasks from your workload, AI sets you up for more collaborative creative brainstorming, helping you strengthen the bond with the other members of your team and enhancing the human connection. This is important, not only for productivity, but also for improved job satisfaction.
  • If you are working in a field where accuracy is of the utmost importance (e.g. finance or healthcare), AI is your ally as it produces more accurate results, reducing the possibility of error.

Helping workers adapt to the presence of AI in the workplace

As we can expect to see even more innovative AI applications entering our working lives, it is important that the labour market take the time to address the fears connected to AI’s increased adoption. Upskilling and reskilling workers to help them adapt to this transition will ensure they stay employable and employed. As some job losses are inevitable, social safety nets such as retraining programmes and financial support during the switch to a new job model will go a long way to alleviate job loss anxiety.

However, despite worries of job displacement, AI is projected to create around 97 million new jobs by 2025, which is just around the corner. Therefore, the smart thing to do is to allow these smart innovations to support our work goals and help us reach higher.
