💡 Quick Guide

How AI Is Changing Daily Work & The Job Market (+ Tips!)

Microsoft & LinkedIn’s comprehensive 2024 Work Index Trend study surveyed 31,000+ people in 31 countries, analyzed LinkedIn hiring trends, and crunched trillions of Microsoft 365 productivity signals — all to shed light on how AI is reshaping not only day-to-day work but the labor market as a whole. Here’s our top takeaways (plus, some tips!).

76% of Employees Use AI at Work

68% of people say they struggle with the pace and volume of work — and many are shifting to AI to get some relief, using AI to catch up on missing meetings, analyze information, design visual content, interact with customers, and brainstorm or problem-solve. Copilot users who saw the most impact spent 25-45% less time reading emails.

Those who use AI at least several times per week save more than 30 minutes per day and say it:

  • Helps them focus on the most important work (93%)

  • Makes their overwhelming workload more manageable (92%)

  • Boosts their creativity (92%)

  • Helps them feel more motivated (91%)

  • Helps them enjoy work more (91%)

“The opportunity for every leader is to channel this momentum into ROI… Organizations that apply AI to drive growth, manage costs, and deliver greater value to customers will pull ahead.”

Businesses Are Slow to Adopt AI…

Despite 79% of leaders agreeing their company needs to adopt AI to stay competitive, 45% of US executives are not currently investing in AI tools or products for employees — citing uncertainty around budgets, measurement, and implementation.

This is leading to 85% of Gen Z, 78% of Millennial, 76% of Gen X, & 73% of Boomer workers bringing their own AI tools to work.

“This approach means missing out on the benefits that come from strategic AI use at scale. It also puts company data at risk in an environment where leaders’ #1 concern for the year ahead is cybersecurity and data privacy.”

…But Intend To Hire Employees With AI Skills

Only 25% of companies are planning to offer generative AI training this year, but 66% of leaders say they wouldn’t hire someone without AI skills… 71% say they’d rather hire a less experienced candidate with AI skills than a more experienced candidate without them.

AI adoption matters to job seekers, too. In another Microsoft study, 54% of early-career and individual contributor employees (i.e., the future of the workforce) said that access to AI would influence their choice of employer.

AI Is Undoubtedly Changing The Workforce

Globally, skills are projected to change by 50% by 2030 (from 2016) — and generative AI is expected to accelerate this change to 68%.

Project managers, architects, and administrative assistants are among the top non-technical professionals upskilling in AI, and administrative and support services, real estate, and retail workers are the top industries’ adding AI skills to their LinkedIn profiles.

“For the vast majority of people, AI isn’t replacing their job but transforming it… Entry-level workers will take on more strategic projects, while uniquely human skills like management, relationship building, negotiation, and critical thinking will come to the fore for employees at all levels.”

Tips for Employees

  • Take AI courses to upskill/reskill & stay competitive in the job market

  • If you feel comfortable doing so, talk to your employers about adopting AI & offering AI training for employees (cite this study as to why its beneficial)

Tips for Leaders

  • Identify a business problem, then apply AI (e.g., start with customer service and focus on improving call-handling time)

  • Take a top-down approach — enlisting your business’ leaders to activate teams around AI
