Most Indian knowledge workers use AI at workplace

New Delhi: AI is increasingly influencing the way people work as well as hire and India has one of the highest AI adoption rates among knowledge workers, says a report by Microsoft and LinkedIn. According to the India findings of the 2024 Annual Work Trend Index from Microsoft and LinkedIn, 92 per cent of knowledge workers in India use AI at work, as compared to the global figure of 75 per cent.

However, a large majority, 91 per cent of leaders in India, also believe their companies need to adopt AI to stay competitive and 54 per cent worry their organisation lacks a plan and vision for implementation. The findings are based on a survey of 31,000 people in 31 countries, labour and hiring trends on LinkedIn, trillions of Microsoft 365 productivity signals and research with Fortune 500 customers. As per the report, AI skills are now a top priority when it comes to hiring, with 75 per cent stating they wouldn't hire someone lacking in AI skills, outpacing the global average of 66 per cent.

"AI skills outweigh experience, with 80 per cent of leaders in India preferring to hire a less experienced candidate with AI skills, over a more experienced candidate without them," the report said.
