Don’t Like Your Manager? Switch to ChatGPT

It is not as far-fetched as it might seem.

Finally, we can get rid of management! Every emergency management coordinator is musing about the prospect of life without a supervisor.

Check out this article that had people putting ChatGPT through its paces in addressing different personnel issues and situations that can come up on a regular basis: “Would ChatGPT Be a Good Manager?” I do think the tool could be useful when a real person is faced with a situation they need to address and are looking for the right words to reply — in some situations.

Here’s a summary:

“People have been turning to ChatGPT to see what types of responses are generated for a myriad of subjects. But, when it comes to business, what would the chatbot say as a manager?

JobSage wanted to see how it performed when it comes to sensitive management scenarios and had responses ranked by experts.

“Key takeaways:
  • Sensitive management scenarios: 60% found to be acceptable while 40% failed.
  • ChatGPT was better at addressing diversity and worse at addressing compensation and underperforming employees. 
  • ChatGPT earned its strongest marks addressing an employee being investigated for sexual harassment and a company switching healthcare providers to cut costs. 
  • ChatGPT performed weakest when asked to respond to an employee concerned about pay equity, a company that needs people to work harder than ever, and a company’s freeze of raises despite record payout to the CEO.”

You can see all the chatbot’s responses at the above link as well as more data.
