about the latest in-demand skills research

The Randstad Enterprise Intelligence team utilized a number of data sources across 23 different markets to compile the list of in-demand skill clusters for the latest Global In-demand Skills research. We sourced millions of job postings and worker profiles to analyze important data on supply and demand, remote working, gender diversity, compensation and other factors, and examined key skills that drive the majority of all global enterprise job demand, leading to the creation of our top 9 skill clusters.

Data sources vary based on those that are most representative for each market and include verified information (such as census data) and granular data (such as skill level, job advertisement databases, professional networking sites, social media, vertical networks and more). The research and analysis were conducted in the third and fourth quarters of 2023. Additional desk research involved various news and information sources to provide context and insights relevant to each skill cluster.
