Digitalisation hiring levels in the railway industry rose in June 2022

We've analysed hiring patterns using data from GlobalData.

By Data Journalism Team

The proportion of railway equipment supply, product and services companies hiring for digitalisation related positions rose significantly in June 2022 compared with the equivalent month last year, with 54.1% of the companies included in our analysis recruiting for at least one such position.

This latest figure was higher than the 43.3% of companies who were hiring for digitalisation related jobs a year ago but a decrease compared to the figure of 59.7% in May 2022.

When it came to the rate of all job openings that were linked to digitalisation, related job postings rose in June 2022 from May 2022, with 18.8% of newly posted job advertisements being linked to the topic.

This latest figure was an increase compared to the 10.9% of newly advertised jobs that were linked to digitalisation in the equivalent month a year ago.

Digitalisation is one of the topics that GlobalData, from whom our data for this article is taken, have 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.

Our analysis of the data shows that railway equipment supply, product and services companies are currently hiring for digitalisation jobs at a rate higher than the average for all companies within GlobalData's job analytics database. The average among all companies stood at 11% in June 2022.

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.
