A recent study by Salesforce has revealed that over a third of Spanish workers (39%) believe that mastering generative artificial intelligence (AI) will help them get a promotion at work. However, the report also warns that the lack of clearly defined policies around the use of this technology may be putting companies at risk.

According to the study, 61% of Spanish workers claim to have used generative AI tools that are not formally approved by their company, and up to 33% have used them despite being expressly prohibited. Many of these employees turn to the new technology without any training, guidance, or approval from their company.

The study titled ‘The Promises and Difficulties of Generative AI at Work’ compiles the opinions of more than 14,000 workers from fourteen countries, including Spain. It points out that company policies and training around generative AI are not clearly defined or, at best, ambiguous.
