GlobalData, Just Food’s parent company, tracks the number of new job postings from key companies in various sectors over time. Using textual analysis, these job advertisements are classified thematically. The data and analytics group seeks to collate key company information by topic to see which companies are best placed to weather the disruptions coming to their industries.

By tracking the topics across job ads, GlobalData says it can weigh up which companies are leading the way on specific issues and which are dragging their heels – and importantly where the market is expanding and contracting.
