Research Spotlight Series #2 – To leverage AI to increase employees’ productivity, is training the only strategy?

When: 15 May 2024, 4pm to 5pm
Location: C2-15, Sims Drive Campus

The introduction of artificial intelligence (AI) has significantly altered the workforce, leading to concerns about its impact on employees. From a psychological perspective, employees can perceive the introduction of AI as a hindrance that reduces their productivity or an opportunity to learn new knowledge (challenge). This lecture highlights Dr Kim's research study, which focuses on how these opinions would affect their perspectives of work and productivity. At the same time, it is also about what employers can do to turn hindrance into challenges. This presentation will contribute to understanding how AI can affect employees’ well-being and performance and provide insights into how employees can work effectively alongside these technologies.
