The impact of AI on the workplace: OECD AI surveys of employers and workers


Image for the AI Employers and Workers Survey Report 2023

While there is a growing body of research on the likely impact of Artificial Intelligence (AI) on the world of work, there has been little analysis to date examining what actually happens in organisations and to workers when AI is introduced. Wishing to capture workers’ and employers’ own perceptions of the current and future impact of AI on their workplaces, the OECD surveyed a total of 5 334 workers and 2 053 firms in the manufacturing and finance sectors in Austria, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States. The two surveys complement one another: the employer survey is a valuable source of information about how and why AI is being implemented, while the worker survey captures the first-person experience of using AI and responding to the changes it brings about.
