Yoh Survey Reveals 63% of Americans Feel Artificial Intelligence Will Have Negative Impacts on the Future of the Workplace

According to a new survey of more than 2,000 U.S. adults conducted online by The Harris Poll on behalf of Yoh, a leading international talent and outsourcing company and part of Day & Zimmermann, 63% of Americans feel that artificial intelligence (AI) will have negative impacts on the future of the workplace. Nearly all Americans (90%) feel AI will change the workplace in some form.

Results also indicated a disconnect between the way employed Americans feel AI will affect other people’s jobs when compared to their own. Of the more than 1,100 employed adults surveyed, 46% feel AI will eliminate the jobs of others, while only 23% feel AI may eliminate their job or make their job less essential. Just 24% of employed adults say AI may make it more difficult for them to get a job of their own in the future.

Additional findings include:

  • Though results showed 63% of Americans say AI will have some negative impacts on the future of the workplace, 54% believe it will have some positive impacts on the workplace as well.
  • Nearly a quarter of Americans (24%) believe that AI will allow businesses to grow and create more jobs.
  • While 31% of employed Americans say AI will help other people do their jobs better and faster, only 21% say AI will help them do their own jobs better and faster.
