Task delegation in the workplace is nothing new, but a survey by The Harris Poll has identified a key difference as we look to the future: Workers will soon be delegating repetitive tasks to AI.

According to the study, nearly three-quarters (72%) of US workers would consider delegating tasks like billing, auditing, and reporting to AI, allowing them to focus on more difficult tasks and jobs that require more manual input, like project management. . .

The results also indicated that Generation Z is more interested in AI than previous generations, as the age group continues to seek a healthy work-life balance. Generation Z will become the largest group attempting to overtake Millennials, so the shift to AI is expected to be significant for many industries.

However, there are still many older workers eager to adopt new technologies. In fact, the study found that 81% of 35- to 44-year-olds and 76% of 45- to 54-year-olds were willing to delegate tasks in an effort to achieve a better work-life balance.

With that in mind, the fifth edition of Deloitte's State of AI in the Enterprise report (opens in a new tab) finds that companies just aren't getting their AI implementations right. Of their survey participants, about one in five (22%) were considered "underperformers," or more simply, they had not adopted enough practices to help them achieve meaningful results.

Deloitte suggests that companies are cashing in on worker enthusiasm for AI, and as Generation Z continues to grow, it seems like there's never been a better time to try out artificial intelligence.
