AI AT Work

Every day, professionals turn to Fishbowl to discuss career topics anonymously and connect with each other to have conversations about work-life. As ChatGPT took the internet by storm, we saw a spike in conversations about generative AI on the Fishbowl platform. 

In order to understand adoption of AI tools in the workplace, we conducted a survey to ask professionals across all industries if they’ve used ChatGPT, or other AI tools, to help with tasks at work. 

The survey ran from January 4-8 of this year and we heard from nearly 4,500 professionals from companies like Amazon, Bank of America,  Edelman, Google, IBM, JP Morgan, McKinsey, Meta, Nike, Twitter, and thousands of others.
