    Insights from this month's labor market data

    Job demand in January 2021 improved compared to December 2020, but all countries tracked, with the exception of Singapore, remain below prepandemic levels. Regardless, some occupations, including IT managers, sales engineers and marketing managers, are seeing pockets of success. 

     Key take-aways from this month's report

    • The U.S. saw continued increases in active job postings in January, bringing active job postings to just 7% below prepandemic levels. 
    • Operations/logistics continues to be the only function without decreases in active job postings, but new functions like marketing/PR and security are on the rise.
