Hitachi today announced that an internal field test was conducted with the cooperation of approximately 600 people from 26 sales & marketing departments from June to October 2016, to measure organizational activation level (organizational happiness level) using artificial intelligence (AI) and wearable technology. Result from the field test confirmed that workstyle advice provided by AI, contributed to raising organizational activation level.

Further, a correlation was confirmed between the change in organizational activation level and purchase order achievement rate. More precisely, the order volume of departments in which the organizational activation level rose during the field test compared to those that fell, was an average of 27% higher in the following quarter (October-December).

Hitachi will use the results of this field test, to further analyze organizational activation level, and by applying this knowledge, contribute to performance prediction and work style reform in companies and other organizations.
