Job Listings & Informed ESG Investing
Sector | Industry Research | Enterprise | Capital Markets
LinkUp job listing data, collected daily and directly from company websites, can add crucial insight into market trends at the industry, geographic, or company level that aid in developing informed investment strategies.
Job listings are a rich data source that may complement, and at times dispute, the self-reported data that often underlie metrics such as Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) ratings, adding a variant dimension when evaluating investment prospects. Industry research, conducted by Voya Investment Management using LinkUp’s robust labor data, shows that the types of roles a company is hiring for (researchers, sales representatives, etc.) and within which cities or states they are looking for labor may suggest an intent to pursue a particular initiative or signal that they are adapting their business models in the near future.
