New research from Harvard’s Institute for Economic Policy Research (IEPR) shows that the internet has changed the economy, making it much more difficult for firms to find employees.
The report, which analyzes data from the internet of things (IoT) marketplaces, finds that companies need to hire people that are familiar with the marketplaces and that they need to be able to communicate with each other to find qualified candidates.
The research also shows that this requires companies to scale up their staffs and find better ways to attract, retain and motivate workers.
The impact of the internet on jobs has been obvious for years.
But it has also been getting a lot of attention in recent months as tech companies have been accused of abusing their dominance over the job market by poaching talent.
IEPr’s research found that, from 2016 to 2020, the US economy grew by 6.3% on average, on average 3.9% more than the OECD average.
The average annual growth rate was 6.1% from 2020 to 2020.
As the number of companies employing people on the internet increased, so too did their need to recruit.
According to IEPr, hiring in the internet economy rose by a whopping 1.7 million people in the same time period.
That has meant that the size of the job-hunting market is now twice the size it was in the early 2000s.
And that is the main reason why the number, number, of companies hiring in this sector has nearly doubled over the last decade.
But, as the number has grown, so has the difficulty of finding qualified candidates for those positions.
The report found that the average time to find a qualified candidate is 11.2 weeks, compared to 7.3 weeks for the average US job market.
And the gap between hiring and finding a candidate has been widening for years, with companies that were once more competitive for the most part now having a hard time finding qualified people.
The internet has also helped companies to diversify their workforces.
According the report, companies have seen an average increase in the number and size of employees they have, but they also have had to increase their work hours to meet the needs of this new workforce.
IEPR found that companies that have hired more than 50% of their workforce over the past five years have seen a 26% increase in their average workweek.
