On April 19, 2016, the BBC published an article titled, 'Truth be told, we're more honest with robots.' Written by Bryan Borzykowski, the article included findings from our recent Intensions Consulting study on the Future of Work across Canada.
To quote from the article: "People are more open with automated tools because they believe computers don’t judge and that they’re more ethical, studies show. A study, released in March by Vancouver, Canada-based market research firm Intensions Consulting found that 26% of Canadian adults believed an unbiased computer program would be more trustworthy and ethical than their workplace leaders and mangers."
Over the past month, our recent Intensions Consulting study on the Future of Work has appeared on a number of online news, trade magazine and media platforms, including: Sputnik, Reddit, HRM Canada, HRM Asia, and Human Resources Online. Below are summaries and links to these articles and discussions.

To quote from the article: "Many workers would like to see a total overhaul of the traditional workplace structure, including freedom from working 9-to-5 (45 per cent) and not showing up at the office at all (41 per cent)... Nearly 40 per cent of Canadians think that work interferes with their personal life and 20 per cent would consider hiring someone from Craigslist or Freelancer to do part of their job for them. About one quarter of respondents think it is fine to pursue their own side projects and interests on company time."
