ChatGPT in the Workplace: Korn Ferry Survey Shows Majority of Professionals Would Use the Tool, Though Less Than Half Trust its Accuracy
Los Angeles, March 27, 2023 – As artificial intelligence chatbot tools such as ChatGPT gain prominence, professionals weigh in on using the technology in the workplace.
In a new Korn Ferry survey of professionals, nearly half (46%) say they are currently using ChatGPT as part of their workday, and 83% say they plan on using it in the future.
However, fewer than half (43%) say they trust that ChatGPT will provide accurate results.
“ChatGPT is a useful tool, but it shouldn’t replace the personalized approach people bring to their daily work or even job searches,” said Brad Frank, a Senior Client Partner in Korn Ferry’s Technology practice. “ChatGPT can streamline the process but should always be checked for both accuracy and the nuances that make a candidate or employee stand out.”
More than half of survey respondents (54%) say that beyond using it in their daily work, they would use ChatGPT to craft their resume.
The majority (80%) of survey respondents say they believe ChatGPT is a legitimate, beneficial work tool that is here to stay, and nearly one-quarter (24%) say their employers are already encouraging the use of ChatGPT in the workplace.
“This new technology has the ability to streamline workflows so team members can focus on important value-generating initiatives such as client service and innovation,” said Frank.
About the survey: The Korn Ferry survey of 312 professionals took place in early March 2023.
