Some 61.8% of the companies monitored by GlobalData – Just Drinks’ parent – were recruiting for at least one such position last month.
This latest figure was higher than the 54.5% of companies that were hiring for such jobs a year ago and an increase compared to the figure of 58.8% in June 2022.
When it came to the rate of all job openings that were linked to the future of work, 2.3% of newly posted job advertisements were linked to the topic. This latest figure was an increase compared to the 1.7% of newly advertised jobs that were linked to the future of work in the equivalent month a year ago.
The future of work is one of the topics that GlobalData has identified as being a key disruptive force facing companies in the coming years. Companies that excel and invest in these areas now are thought to be better prepared for the future business landscape and better equipped to survive unforeseen challenges.
GlobalData’s job analytics database tracks the daily hiring patterns of thousands of companies across the world, drawing in jobs as they’re posted and tagging them with additional layers of data on everything from the seniority of each position to whether a job is linked to wider industry trends.
