Industry Research : New Zealand Workforce Shines in Multinational Employee Survey for Fearless Acceptance of New Technology

#contactcenterworld, @Genesys

New data released by global technology provider Genesys shows New Zealand employees are the most secure in their roles when it comes to embracing artificial intelligence (AI) in the workplace, compared to all other countries surveyed including, Australia, USA, UK, Germany and Japan.

New Zealand employees stood out for their willingness to be trained by AI, their confidence in job security and the positive impact they believe this intelligent technology will have on their jobs. They also had the highest level of trust in their employers to use AI ethically and appropriately.

Training

51% of New Zealand employees surveyed stated they were open to being trained by AI, Bots, and human-like robots compared to the overall average of 37%, and up to a remarkable 21% and 19% more than Japan and Germany respectively.

New Zealanders were also least resistant to using some form of technology for training, with only 12% ‘not willing’ to use a virtual assistant, augmented reality (AR) or virtual reality (VR) compared to the global average of 26%.

Jobs

New Zealand worker’s intrepid approach to the future was highlighted across a spectrum of sentiment questions targeting the direct impact AI currently has, and is predicted to have, on their jobs. Results saw below-average negative, and above-average positive sentiments expressed in all questions relating to the ‘impact’ on jobs, and of note:

• New Zealand respondents are 9% less concerned AI/Bots will take their jobs in 10 years compared to other regions – and a full 14% less than UK respondents.

• 38% of New Zealanders believe AI will have a positive impact on their jobs in as little as 5 years.

• At 88%, New Zealand had the highest net positive views on the impact of technology in the workplace.

• 62% of respondents from New Zealand feel they already possess the skills required to work in an AI-enabled workforce; 15% more than the average and 12% more than respondents from Australia.

Responsibility

Ethics, governance and areas of responsibility posed the greatest challenge to respondents in all regions, however, New Zealanders displayed the greatest confidence in their employers and also had the highest expectations.

Almost three-quarters of New Zealanders are not afraid of their company using AI unethically, compared to as little as 53% in Japan and only 66% in Australia. In turn, a staggering 91% - and the highest of all regions - believe the company or employer should be responsible for training staff in an AI-enabled workplace.

Ian McLean, New Zealand Account Director, Genesys said, "I’m not surprised to hear that New Zealand employees are easily adapting to the current technology as well as fearlessly planning for future developments. I see it every day with the Genesys customers I work with. As a country, the ethics, commercial frameworks and business practices are second to none, so we have confidence that we can make the most of the technology available to us."

Survey Notes

Genesys(R), a global provider in omnichannel customer experience and contact centre solutions, commissioned this survey to better understand current global attitudes towards artificial intelligence in the workplace and what this means for the future of AI.

4,207 employees from five regions including ANZ, the US, UK, Japan and Germany completed the online survey in April 2019. Respondents were evenly divided into three age ranges (18-38, 39-54, 55-73) with women accounting for 51% and men 49%.
