Workshop: AI and the labour market: digital transformation and employees


Ask a trade union or an employee what they think of AI and chances are that concerns will soon surface. Will AI systems take over our jobs? Will our work be profoundly changed by these innovations? In this workshop, we will take a closer look at the impact of AI and automation on employment and workers' rights. Then we will zoom in on the challenges that a company or organisation faces with AI and automation and how to make a success of such a process of digital transformation.

Outcome of the workshop

Understanding the employee challenges that can arise when introducing AI and digital innovation into a business or organisation and how to deal with them.

What we do

A staff member of the Data & Society Knowledge Centre will think with you and your team about possible challenges to get started with AI. Based on a number of methods, the group will then think about possible strategies to make the digital (AI) transformation go smoothly. On which employees does AI have an impact and what are the effects to be anticipated? How can the company or organisation deal with this and how do you achieve supported innovation in which employees are also central?

Time and costs

Workshop of two hours, with possibility for extension depending on the exact purpose and target group of the course. It is best for the workshop to include various profiles that (will) come into direct or indirect contact with an AI system in the workplace.
