Delivering sustainable economic growth

Artificial intelligence (AI), like any workplace technology, changes the division of labour in an organisation and the resulting design of jobs. When AI automates management tasks through algorithmic management, the consequences influence workers’ control over their work, with impacts on their autonomy, skill use and workload. In their Bruegel paper, Laura Nurski and Mia Hoffmann suggest that meaningful worker participation in the adoption of workplace AI is needed to mitigate the potentially negative effects of AI adoption on workers and can help achieve fair and transparent AI systems with human oversight. Policymakers should help by strengthening the role of social partners in the adoption of AI technology, to protect workers’ bargaining power. 14 2022.pdf
