For several months, we’ve been writing off and on about the unrelenting workforce changes in the technology field. As of the end of November 2023, layoffs.fyi, a site tracking employment trends in the tech industry, reported that more than 1,100 companies have laid off more than 251,000 employees. That’s more than A QUARTER OF A MILLION EMPLOYEES who have been affected by industry cutbacks this year – and there’s still a month to go!
Working and living with the constant threat of losing your job takes a grueling physical and emotional toll. For workers in high-tech fields, Artificial Intelligence (AI) appears to be the catalyst that will continue to advance this trend into 2024 and beyond.
In a recent article on Techopedia.com, Anna Tavis, a clinical professor in human capital management at New York University, says, “In the aftermath of the recruitment surge post-pandemic, its lingering effects remain evident. Tech firms overspent on growing their staff sizes. Now they experience a pressing need to recalibrate their ranks and align to the needed levels. There is a heightened anticipation surrounding the potential labor cost efficiencies from adopting AI. Given AI advancements, companies are preparing for a major shift.”
