Head of Product & Software Development in Construction, 11 - 50 employees
Actually all but automatic rejection is the stupidest thing.
Recently I applied for a new job at one of the great companies in Dubai. They told me I was lucky because their automatic rejection workflow wasn’t working properly when I applied and I should have been rejected because of the number of years I entered for one of the questions.
Now I passed the third interview round with them and waiting for the offer :)

Yes - Maine did the right thing. There are too many security risks with free versions of these tools. Not enough copyright or privacy protections of data.31%

No, but.... - You must have good security and privacy policies in place for ChatGPT (and other GenAI apps). My organization has policies and meaningful ways to enforce those policies and procedures for staff.52%

No - Bans simply don't work. Even without policies, this action hurts innovation and sends the wrong message to staff and the world about our organization.12%

I'm not sure. This action by Maine makes me think. Let me get back to you in a few weeks (or months).3%
