Comparing data from October 2020 to October 2019, HR generalist jobs dropped 37%, while sales managers, executive assistants, accounts payable specialists, event coordinators and educational instructors fell significantly as well, according to Nov. 19 research from Glassdoor.
Some jobs, however, saw a lift in 2020: Glassdoor found that warehouse worker jobs were up 174% year over year while registered nurse jobs were up 51%, adding that "employers in e-commerce, health care and other front-line industries will likely continue to ramp up hiring in 2021."
The workplace trends report also highlighted the high likelihood of continued remote and hybrid work and flexible scheduling, citing previous research, as well as the significant increase of candidate interest in diversity and inclusion. Glassdoor also predicted that changes in salary — based on economic conditions and where people decide to work — and culture rebuilding will be key priorities for employers.
