Chaos at OpenAI adds fuel to the AI talent poaching war
With most of OpenAI’s employees threatening to leave following Sam Altman’s ousting, company rivals might be missing the biggest opportunity of the year: poaching talent. As chaos at OpenAI and Microsoft, where Altman is headed now, continues, companies like Anthropic, Mozilla or Patronus AI could be attractive to employees seeking stability. The upshot? OpenAI employees — a pool of highly sought-after AI experts — could scatter to other companies or follow Altman. “That talent is the crown jewel of the organization,” Tammy Madsen, professor of management in the Leavey School of Business at Santa Clara University told TechCrunch. “This is a space where there is a wide gap in what companies are seeing that they need in terms of AI talent and applied AI, and in what they’re seeing in terms of what’s available.” Case in point, Salesforce CEO Marc Benioff, who earlier this afternoon posted on X that “Salesforce will match any OpenAI researcher who has tendered their resignation full cash & equity OTE to immediately join our Salesforce Einstein Trusted AI research team under Silvio Savarese. Send me your cv directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. Einstein is the most successful enterprise AI Platform completing 1 Trillion predictive & generative transactions this week!

AI will enable 4-day work week to help avoid mass unemployment and widespread mental & physical illnesses
Artificial intelligence could enable millions of workers to move to a four-day week by 2033, according to a new study focusing on British and American workforces. The report from the thinktank Autonomy found that projected productivity gains from the introduction of AI could reduce the working week from 40 to 32 hours for 28% of the workforce – 8.8 million people in Britain and 35 million in the US – while maintaining pay and performance. The study says this could be achieved by bringing large language models (LLMs), such as ChatGPT, into workplaces to augment workers’ roles and create more free time. According to Autonomy, such a policy could also help to avoid mass unemployment and reduce widespread mental and physical illnesses.
Talent Board research finds hiring is normalizing not nosediving
According to an upcoming Talent Board research report, nearly all respondents told us they’re relying on reskilling and upskilling to fill in their organizations’ gaps in specialized and hard-to-find skill sets: 37% are doing so to a significant degree, and 27% are doing so to a great degree. That definitely makes sense, since job growth is starting to slow, or more specifically, normalize to pre-pandemic levels, with employers adding 150,000 jobs in October. The unemployment rate also ticked up to 3.9%. Part of the slowdown is due to the impact of the UAW’s strike against all Big Three automakers, with union deals now reached with each of them. And according to labor columnist Jay Denton’s latest ERE article, “The number of people voluntarily quitting their job was at just over 3.6 million in both July and August. Those are the two lowest totals since February 2021.” [So] are we just normalizing instead of nosediving? Maybe. In our latest CandE Community Pulse results for October, the good news is that hiring continues to be stable (at least with those who responded the past 10 months) and again reflects the bigger jobs reports the past few months, even with the slowdown. When we asked employers what their current hiring status was, 76% said “we’re hiring,” up from September, but still consistently stable since January. However, freezing hiring was still up in October, but laying off and redeploying were down. (Additionally, contract and management hires increased in October.)
