Swedish buy-now-pay-later giant Klarna claimed that almost all of its employees are using GenAI as part of their daily work. 

The fintech company said on Tuesday (14 May) that around 87% of its workforce regularly used GenAI tools, including OpenAI’s ChatGPT and the company’s own AI assistant. 

“We push everyone to test, test, test and explore,” said Sebastian Siemiatkowski, CEO and Co-Founder at Klarna. “As Klarna continues to discover applications for OpenAI’s tech, there’s the potential to take the business to new heights,”

“We’re aimed at achieving a new level of employee empowerment, enhancing both our team’s performance and the customer experience,” he added. 

According to Klarna, GenAI is mostly being used by those in non-technical roles, such as communications (92.6%), legal (86.4%) and marketing (87.9%).

KiKi, the company’s internal AI assistant built with OpenAI’s large language models, reportedly answers over 2,000 questions a day.
