8 in 10 biz leaders stress urgent need to cultivate ‘AI Mindset’ amongst employees

Microsoft said employees will need new skills like prompt engineering in their daily work.

Most business leaders (88%) in Hong Kong recognise the need for developing an “AI Mindset” amongst their employees and equipping them with new skills in preparation for the growth of such technology.

A new core competency that business leaders believe employees will eventually need in their day-to-day work is prompt engineering.

On the bright side, a new AI-employee alliance has been building up amongst organisations in the city, with 83% of employees saying they would assign as much work as possible to AI to lessen workloads.

Four in five employees also said they would be comfortable using AI not just for administrative tasks but also for analytical work and creative aspects of their role. 

“While AI will power a whole new way of working for everyone, business leaders should understand how these emerging technologies will fundamentally change the nature of work and improve efficiency to drive productivity”, said Maria Hui, Chief Operating Officer of Microsoft
Hong Kong.

“As AI technology continues to develop, upskilling will become increasingly important to stay competitive. Both business leaders and employees should take advantage of these opportunities and adapt to the new way of work.” Hui added.
