Future of Work

The OECD is monitoring closely how labour markets are changing in response to the mega-trends of technological change, globalisation and population ageing. The aim is to better understand the opportunities and risks associated with these new developments, and provide evidence-based advice on how countries should respond in the areas of skills policy, social protection, labour market regulation and social dialogue.

Artificial intelligence and jobs: An urgent need to act

OECD labour markets remain tight even as the recovery has stalled, with unemployment at a low not seen since the early 1970s. Yet, nominal wages have not kept up with high and persistent inflation, and real income of workers has fallen in almost all OECD countries. Increasingly rapid developments in AI are likely to significantly affect jobs. Initial results from a new OECD survey on AI use in the manufacturing and finance sectors show the urgent need to act now, with policies that allow countries, firms and individuals to benefit from AI, while addressing risks.

Data and Results

The OECD AI surveys capture the views of over 5,000 workers and 2,000 firms in the manufacturing sector and in the finance and insurance sector. They examine how and why artificial intelligence is being implemented as well as its impact on job quantity, job quality and skills needs.
