86% Indians find AI-powered automation helpful in job fulfilment: Survey
New Delhi, May 17 (KNN) Nearly 86 per cent of Indians believe that automation can address burnout and improve job fulfilment, as per a survey commissioned by UiPath (NYSE: PATH), a leading enterprise automation software company.
And 85 per cent report that they view employers that use business automation to help support employees and modernize operations more favourably than those that do not.
Employees are being asked to do more work with less support, with 53 per cent of Indian respondents saying they've been asked to take on more tasks at work in the past six months because of layoffs or hiring freezes, revealed the survey.
As work pile-up takes a toll on employees—more than one in four workers (36%) in India report feelings of burnout—more staffers are leaning on AI tools to provide relief, giving rise to the Automation Generation.
About 63 per cent of all respondents are already using business automation solutions at work.
Of these workers comprising the Automation Generation, 96 per cent feel like they have the resources and support needed to do their job effectively and 94 per cent believe business automation solutions can help address burnout and enhance job satisfaction.
"India is poised to become a USD 5 trillion economy by 2025 and automation will play a crucial role in this journey," said Arun Balasubramanian, Vice President & Managing Director, India & South Asia, UiPath.
"This survey has highlighted that across all generations in India, a majority of workers are embracing the potential of AI-powered automation to support them at work," he said. (KNN Bureau)
