As employees seek the advantages of flexibility and lower commuting costs, working remotely has become a more and more popular option over the years. The COVID-19 crisis will result in multiple labor market shifts, but one could argue that the most immediate and massive swing has been to the prevalence of working from home. So, let’s explore the five things you should know about remote work, and talk a little bit about where it might be headed.
COVID-19 is wreaking havoc on the U.S., both medically and economically. With the situation changing quickly, we built a public job posting dashboard to help you navigate the labor market’s response to COVID-19 in real time. Track job posting trends by day, week, month, region, industry, company, job, and skill.
As economic and workforce development professionals, you are on the front lines of your community’s response to COVID-19. To support your community and provide impactful assistance to local businesses, you and your businesses need to be armed with the right data. Please join us Thursday, April 2, from 12:00pm to 1:00pm PST for our Real-Time Data to Support Your Local Businesses Right Now webinar.
Emsi now provides daily updates to job postings data in our labor market analysis tools. In this post, we show how you can access this data and use it to better understand the evolving needs of employers in your regional economy.
Recent events have pushed virtually all of higher education to move their programs online–including colleges who hadn’t planned on making that move for quite some time. This rapid shift to remote learning has highlighted some of the distinct advantages of online programs, but it has also created new challenges for those who provide advising and offer student support services.
US restaurants are reeling from the effect of COVID-19. Every day, more city and state leaders are closing bars and restaurants to dine-in customers in response to the virus. We used Emsi’s Input-Output model to find out how these closures will affect the US restaurant industry.
Online programs present an exciting opportunity for institutions to expand their reach and serve new markets. But they also raise unique questions when it comes to program alignment, employer engagement, and how to focus marketing efforts. To help your institution answer these questions, Emsi hosted a webinar with Aaron King, Program Director at the University of Florida’s Office of Distance Learning. King shared how his team uses a blend of traditional and real-time labor market data to guide program development, employer engagement, and marketing strategy.
