Top 10 Skills in Demand at the Top 10 U.S. Companies

This article describes Emsi research into the top ten in-demand skills U.S. Fortune 500 companies were seeking in employees. To do this, Emsi looked at the top ten companies on Fortune magazine’s 2020 list and pulled data from millions of their online job postings, comparing them by company, to uncover the top ten skills these companies sought from 2017 to 2019 and how those skill demands have changed over time. Findings show that skills such as communications, management, and leadership consistently top the list, followed by customer service, operations, and sales. The article shows data from each of the ten companies displayed in a flow diagram illustrating the change over time from the first quarter of 2017 to the second quarter of 2019. When Emsi researchers compared the top in-demand skills data from these top ten companies to all companies across the U.S. using online job postings, they found the same skills consistently identified.

First Step Act: Best Practices for Academic and Vocational Education for Offenders

First Step Act: Best Practices for Academic and Vocational Education for Offenders, a report from the National Institute of Justice, examines the best practices and outcomes in correctional settings when skill-enhancing initiatives, such as remedial academics and vocational programming, are implemented. A key component of successful re-entry for ex-offenders is the acquisition of new personal, academic, and employability skills through participation in skill-enhancing programs while still incarcerated. Best practices include participation in an ESOL program until reaching a minimum English proficiency level of eighth grade, classes to build foundational literacy skills, high school equivalency programs for inmates lacking a high school diploma, and occupational education courses to prepare inmates for reentry after release. An innovative life skills and behavioral/cognitive change program called Breaking Barriers is specifically highlighted and could serve as a model for future correctional program design. Other findings show that when drug and alcohol intervention programs and therapeutic communities are implemented, there are positive outcomes in the effort to reduce recidivism.
