The report spotlights employees’ strong desire for AI integration in the workplace, the opportunities it creates for career growth, and the emergence of AI power users in the future of work.

Ruchee Anand, head of Talent & Learning Solutions at LinkedIn said, “AI is transforming the world of work, reshaping the talent landscape and nudging both individuals and organizations to embrace change. The demand for AI expertise has seen a remarkable 17% jump from last year, echoing LinkedIn platform insights and findings of the Work Trend Index.”

“We’ve seen professionals in India over-index on learning while also adding AI skills to their professional toolkit. As the workforce looks to tap into the benefits of AI, it’s crucial for leaders to boost their organization’s AI capabilities through thoughtful investment in both technology and talent”, Ruchee Anand added.

For India’s leaders, AI skills are now a top priority when it comes to hiring, with 75% stating they wouldn’t hire someone lacking in AI skills, outpacing the global average of 66%. Interestingly, AI skills outweigh experience, with 80% of leaders in India preferring to hire a less experienced candidate with AI skills, over a more experienced candidate without them.

As of late last year, there has been a 142x increase globally in LinkedIn members adding AI skills like Copilot and ChatGPT to their profiles and a 160% increase in non-technical professionals using LinkedIn Learning courses to build their AI aptitude.

India’s workforce is very optimistic about AI. Ninety-two percent of knowledge workers in India use AI at work as compared to the global figure of 75%, reflecting employee confidence in AI to save time, boost creativity, and focus.

Ninety-one percent of leaders in India also believe their companies need to adopt AI to stay competitive, 54% worry their organization lacks a plan and vision for implementation.
