A survey of 2,002 UK employees revealed that half of them are taking the help of generative artificial intelligence (AI) tools to enhance their work-life balance.

With the advent of generative artificial intelligence, there are debates over whether it would take away workers’ jobs or help them increase their productivity.

63% of Young UK Employees Are Using Generative AI at Least Once a Week

A Bloomberg report, citing an Accenture survey, mentions that half of the British employees use generative AI at least once weekly. Accenture surveyed 2,002 UK-based employees working on-site as well as in remote roles.

Generative AI tools are helping employees save time, as they can rely on the chatbots for certain repetitive tasks. As a result, around 30% of the survey participants want to utilize the time to engage in non-work activities, improving their work-life balance.

Emma Kendrew, the technology lead at Accenture, UK, said:

“There will continue to be a strong appetite for AI from office workers, with many exploring it as an opportunity to find greater overall satisfaction in their working lives.”

On the downside, the utilization of generative AI tools is mostly concentrated on 18 to 24-year-olds. The screenshot below shows that 63% of the surveyed 18 to 24-year-old UK employees use generative AI at least once a week. But, only 22% of participants over 55 utilize the technology.

Indeed, the survey results reveal that UK employees are utilizing generative AI tools. However, another survey from Salesforce indicates that consumers are concerned with how companies use generative AI. According to the Salesforce survey, only 13% of consumers completely trust companies to use AI ethically.

While UK employees benefit from the generative AI technology, the country is all set to host an AI summit next month. According to Bloomberg, the summit participants will discuss the threat of humans losing control of artificial intelligence, potential election disruption, and national security concerns posed by the technology.

The US Vice President Kamala Harris is one of the confirmed speakers.
