Facebook is creating 1,000 new jobs in the UK

Facebook is set to hire another 1,000 people in the U.K by the end of 2020.

The social media giant’s chief operating officer, Sheryl Sandberg, will announce the new jobs in London on Tuesday, which will bring its total headcount in Britain to more than 4,000.

London, where Facebook has over 3,000 employees, is home to the company’s largest software engineering hub outside the U.S. The firm said the majority of the job openings announced Tuesday would be focused on technology and product.

A key focus of the growth plans will be boosting the tech giant’s efforts to tackle toxic content. Facebook said it would also look to further development in artificial intelligence, augmented and virtual reality and its messaging apps WhatsApp and Workplace, the latter of which is aimed at enterprises and considered a rival to Slack and Microsoft’s Teams app.

The company is set to employ more people in its team devoted to building tools to identify and remove harmful content across its Facebook, Messenger, Instagram and WhatsApp platforms. The availability of harmful content online has been a key concern for regulators around the world.

Labor Department makes change to the way jobs data is released, aimed at hedge funds, media

The Labor Department is changing the way it will release economic reports to the public, in an effort to tighten security it says gave Wall Street traders an unfair advantage. In an announcement Thursday, the department said it no longer will allow computers in the lockups it hosts for credentialed press.

Labor Department makes change to the way jobs data is released, aimed at hedge funds, media

The Labor Department is changing the way it will release economic reports to the public, in an effort to tighten security it says gave Wall Street traders an unfair advantage.

In an announcement Thursday, the department said it no longer will allow computers in the lockups it hosts for credentialed press. Media members have access ahead of time to reports, in particular the monthly nonfarm payrolls count, in a room with no outside access. Print and digital outlets are allowed to file stories precisely at 8:30, while broadcast networks have their own lockups after which they can report the news.

The changes are aimed at news organizations that sell the information from the reports to high-speed traders, according to a senior department official who spoke on condition of anonymity. While the spokesman denied that the new rules are aimed at any one outlet, one media firm that this pertains to is Bloomberg News, whose founder, Michael Bloomberg, is running for president as a Democrat.

As a practical matter, the new rules will most impact print and digital, who won’t have access to devices to file stories immediately after the jobs report, which is closely watched on Wall Street and often moves markets.

The department previously had prohibited outside devices like laptops, tablets and smart watches from the lockup room. It did, however, allow journalists to work at DOL computers whose online access was shut down during the lockups.

There was no apparent recent provocation for the move. The department spokesman said the impetus came instead from the department’s inspector general.

The changes will take effect March 1.

These are the 20 best jobs in America in 2020, according to a new ranking—and they're hiring

If you’re looking for a job with more pay, opportunity or benefits, then now is the perfect time to revamp your resume and apply.

According to Glassdoor economist Daniel Zhuo, there are a number of unfilled jobs after the holiday slump that recruiters are eager to fill at the top of the year. And workers seem eager to apply: There has been a 22% boost in job applications started on Glassdoor’s platform in January.

“Our advice to job seekers is to be patient but proactive,” says Zhuo. “Job seekers should ride the wave of motivation into the new year but should be aware that recruiters and hiring managers may be slower to respond in January as they return from the holidays and sort through a higher-than-usual volume of applications.”

Using data from its platform, Glassdoor created a list of the best jobs in 2020 that job seekers should keep a close eye on. These jobs are ranked based on salary, a job satisfaction score on a scale of one to five, and number of job openings on Glassdoor’s platform.

Seven of the top 10 jobs on the list are in tech, with front-end engineer coming in at the top spot.

Data scientist, which previously held the No. 1 spot for the past four years, fell to number three this year.

And Java developer came in the second spot.

All of these roles offer a salary of $80,000 or more, and they all have a satisfactory rating of 3.9 or above.

Take a look below to see what roles rounded out the top 20 spots on Glassdoor’s list of best jobs in America in 2020.

There are now more women working in the US than men—and these cultural shifts are part of the reason why

Currently, women make up 50.04% of payroll jobs in the U.S., signaling that women are benefiting more than men from today’s tight labor market. When looking at the growth rate of these industries, construction and manufacturing added 356,000 jobs to the economy between 2018 and 2019.

There are now more women working in the US than men—and these cultural shifts are part of the reason why

“The economy created exactly 10 times as many jobs in the services sector than in the goods-producing sector in 2019,” she explains. “So, it was a very weak year for male-dominated manufacturing, oil and gas industries and a very strong year for female-dominated industries such as health care and education.”

Currently, women make up 50.04% of payroll jobs in the U.S., signaling that women are benefiting more than men from today’s tight labor market.

As the U.S. economy continues to see consistent job gains, women are now outnumbering men in the U.S. workforce for the first time since 2010, according to the latest report from the Bureau of Labor Statistics .

According to the Economic Policy Institute, men make up 77% of employment in construction and manufacturing sectors, while women make up 77% of employment in education and healthcare sectors. When looking at the growth rate of these industries, construction and manufacturing added 356,000 jobs to the economy between 2018 and 2019. Meanwhile, education and healthcare added 603,000 jobs to the economy during the same time period.

Economists at the Bureau of Labor Statistics credit the decline of manufacturing jobs to several factors, including trade war issues with China and a shift in skills needed, putting more men who had once been qualified enough to work in the industry out of work. “Between 2000 and 2017, as employment rates declined in the manufacturing sector, college-educated men saw their annual work hours reduced by 7.4%, compared with a 0.7% reduction for college-educated women,” the BLS reports.

Also, with women outnumbering men at all levels of post-secondary education, many male-dominated industries are now starting to see an increase of women entering the field.

For instance, women now make up 13.8% of mining and logging jobs, which is up from 12.6% a year ago, reports Bloomberg. And with a tight labor market that includes more employers being hungry for talent, Pollak says many industries are widening their net and creating flexible opportunities that allow women who left the workforce for motherhood to re-enter.

“Whenever you have these economic shifts, they also tend to cause cultural shifts too,” she adds. So in addition to seeing more women entering the workforce, Pollak says that the latest jobs report could also point to more men being willing to stay at home.

According to data from Pew Research Center, the number of stay-at-home dads between 1989 and 2016 had almost doubled from 4% to 7%. Meanwhile, the number of stay-at-home moms remained almost unchanged, with a slight decrease from 28% in 1989 to 27% in 2016.

“We’re noticing that it’s increasingly becoming cool to be a stay-at-home dad,” she says, “which is allowing women, in some cases, to go to work.”

Though the tight labor market is showing signs of continued opportunity for women, Pollak points out that not everyone is being positively impacted by the economy.

“Despite how tight the labor market is and how exciting the outcomes are, there are still some disappointing parts, including a stubbornly high number of discouraged workers and long-time unemployed workers,” she says. “These people being left behind are more likely to be men than women because they have a higher chance of having been incarcerated and a higher chance of being affected by the opioid crisis.”

The best tech jobs for 2020, according to Glassdoor

It’s good to be a techie.

Tech jobs in fields from cloud engineering to UX design filled Glassdoor’s annual report on the 50 best jobs in America for 2020. Jobs in the sector appeared 20 times on the list, taking the top seven spots. Glassdoor is a website where workers anonymously rate and review their employers.

Considering the explosion in growth experienced by some of the largest tech companies in the world over the past 20 years, it should not be surprising that tech jobs dominate such lists. The five largest tech firms in the United States — Microsoft, Apple, Amazon, Alphabet (the parent company of Google), and Facebook — have collectively put more than 1 million people to work between 2000 and 2018, according to financial filings from those companies.

However, you don’t have to work at a mega-cap tech company to land one of these gigs, Glassdoor said, as businesses across all industries take on employees with technical backgrounds to compete in an increasingly technological world.

Glassdoor analyzed user-generated data on its site to create the rankings using three variables: earning potential, overall job satisfaction and number of openings.

The role of front-end engineer claimed the top spot on this year’s list, bumping down data scientist, which was named Glassdoor’s best job every year since 2016. Glassdoor said front-end engineer managed to climb the ranks thanks to an increase in demand for such employees, with over 13,000 open roles, based on Glassdoor’s data, nearly double the number of openings for data scientists.

Product manager, which placed fourth on the list, offers employees the highest median base salary of $117,713, according to Glassdoor’s data, while product designer and Salesforce developer tied with the highest job satisfaction rating score of 4.2. Software engineer, which placed seventh overall, is the job most in demand, with 50,438 job openings.

Glassdoor ranks job satisfaction on a 1-5 scale.

Here is Glassdoor’s ranking of the top 20 tech jobs in the U.S. for 2020 and their rankings in the overall top 50 list:

Jobs are on the line and time is ticking as Boeing's new CEO takes over

Dave Calhoun, Chairman of Boeing Adam Jeffery | CNBC

Boeing’s new CEO, Dave Calhoun, has a daunting to-do list when he takes the reins at the company’s Chicago headquarters on Monday: improving the plane-maker’s strained relationships with regulators and airline customers, winning back public trust and getting the 737 Max — grounded for almost a year after two deadly crashes — flying again. A more than decadelong Boeing board member, Calhoun has already signaled he will be more conservative than his predecessor Dennis Muilenburg. The board ousted Muilenburg just before Christmas after his botched response to the crashes and overoptimistic forecast that regulators would allow the planes to fly again before the end of 2019. The latter drew public ire from the Federal Aviation Administration, setting up a rare confrontation between the regulator and the biggest company it oversees. Calhoun, 62 and a veteran of General Electric and Blackstone Group, has been playing peacemaker with the FAA. He also favored the company recommending airline pilots undergo simulator training before the 737 Max can fly again, reversing the company’s position when Muilenburg was at the helm. The change promises to add millions in costs for Boeing but is one that aims to restore confidence in the planes’ safety. “He’s certainly the right person to stabilize the situation,” said Teal Group aviation analyst Richard Aboulafia.

Culture takes priority

Perhaps Calhoun’s most challenging task will be fixing Boeing’s internal culture that has drawn criticism from lawmakers for prioritizing costs over safety, which has been blamed for killing the 346 people on the crashed flights in Indonesia and Ethiopia. Calhoun urged the company to release hundreds of internal messages about the 737 Max’s development, a person familiar with his thinking said, adding that Calhoun will spend time at the company’s Seattle plant to talk with employees. Those embarrassing messages showed Boeing employees bragging about bullying regulators into approving more lax training standards for the plane, saying the jetliners were “designed by clowns who in turn are supervised by monkeys.” Broadly, they showed employees under pressure to keep costs down and a general arrogance toward regulators and airline customers around the world. They also showed that some employees were worried about safety standards and spoke out. “Would you put your family on a MAX simulator-trained aircraft? asked a Boeing employee to a colleague in a 2018 exchange. “I wouldn’t.” His co-worker replied: “No.”

‘Completely unacceptable’

Boeing called the messages “completely unacceptable.” It said the “language used in these communications, and some of the sentiments they express, are inconsistent with Boeing values, and the company is taking appropriate action in response. This will ultimately include disciplinary or other personnel action, once the necessary reviews are completed.” Calhoun is an insider and the released messages were exchanged during his more than 10 years on Boeing’s board. Some family members of crash victims say he was too close the problem. “It’s not going to change the culture within Boeing,” said Paul Njoroge, who lost his wife, three children and mother-in-law on Ethiopian Airlines Flight 302 in March. “There is a culture of ignoring safety … maximizing profits.” Rep. Peter DeFazio, D-Ore., chairman of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, which is investigating the 737 Max, on Friday said he recently told Calhoun that he needs to change Boeing’s structure so executives are not as beholden to Wall Street. The decisions that brought the planes to market faster was “all driven by watching the stock price and corporate pressure,” DeFazio told reporters. Calhoun will have more to do than getting regulators to sign off on the Max, a task that will earn him a $7 million bonus if he does that and meets other financial targets, according to a securities filing on Friday. He must also deal with delays and the possibility of additional regulatory scrutiny on the Boeing 777X plane as well as sliding demand for wide-body jetliners in general. Hobbled by the crisis, Boeing hasn’t been able to move forward with plans for a new mid-market aircraft, handing a bigger lead over to chief rival Airbus as the European planemaker wins sales of its forthcoming long-range, single-aisle plane from airlines including American and United.

Layoffs, production shutdown

The worldwide grounding has wiped more than $50 billion from Boeing’s market value and is threatening to drive up costs further as it heads toward the one-year mark. Regulators say they have no firm timeline of when they will approve Boeing’s changes to the planes to bless them as airworthy again. That uncertainty has dented revenue for airlines that flew the Max by more than a $1 billion and counting. In July, Boeing took a $4.9 billion after-tax charge to compensate airlines. It has already reached preliminary agreements with American and Southwest, but those customers don’t expect the planes to fly again until at least April, which will further add to Boeing’s tab. The company will likely provide an update to the cost of the grounding when it reports earnings in late January. This month, Boeing is planning to down its 737 Max production facility in Washington state, reassigning some 3,000 of its workers to other facilities, including in California. It said it doesn’t expect to lay off employees, but the crisis is already hitting suppliers, including engine-maker General Electric. Spirit Aerosystems, which makes fuselages for the Max, said it would cut an initial 2,800 jobs because of the crisis. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Sunday said the Boeing 737 Max problems could slow U.S. economic growth this year by half a percentage point to 2.5%.

Dow Jones Industrial Average falls 133 points

The Dow slid 133.13 points, or 0.46%, to 28,823.77 after briefly breaking above 29,000 for the first time. The S&P 500 dipped 0.29% to 3,265.35. The Nasdaq Composite slid 0.27% to end at 9,178.86. Wall Street slipped from record highs after disappointing jobs data was released to end a wild week.

US jobs report misses

The U.S. economy added just 145,000 jobs last month. That’s below the Dow Jones estimate of 160,000. Wages also grew at a slower-than-expected pace in December. Still, the data was not weak enough to sound any alarms about the state of the U.S. economy. Friday’s muted action was also in stark contrast to the rest of the week as investors dealt with the uncertainty arising from U.S.-Iran tensions.

Netflix and Amazon drop, Apple dips from record

Netflix and Amazon shares slid 1.97% and 0.94%, respectively, contributing to the broader market’s losses. Apple finished the session down 0.23%, slipping from a record high.

What happens next?

These 20 companies around the world are on a hiring spree for work-from-home jobs

The potential to work for a company from anywhere in the world has never been greater.

According to a report from the Society for Human Resources Management, 69% of organizations allowed employees to work from home at least some of the time in 2019 — more than three times the share of companies who allowed telecommuting 20 years ago.

Many remote workers are highly compensated (nearly a quarter earn $100,000 or more) and they tend to be happier in their jobs. A combination of factors, including improved worker satisfaction, greater productivity and more efficient use of company resources, are some reasons why the ability to work from just about anywhere is one of the biggest workplace trends to watch for in 2020 and beyond.

To determine which employers are leading the charge in this space, FlexJobs identified the best companies to work for to land a work-from-home job today.

The job listing site analyzed its database of over 54,000 companies and identified the ones that posted the highest number of remote jobs in 2019, suggesting they’ll continue to hire a large amount of remote workers in the new year. Jobs on the site can be advertised as being a either part-time or full-time remote work arrangement.

US futures point to higher open as investors await key jobs data

U.S. stock index futures were higher Friday morning as world markets rally on the back of easing tensions in the Middle East. ET, Dow futures rose 41 points, indicating a positive open of more than 49 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were also higher. Both economic powers are set to meet next week at the White House to sign the first phase of the agreement. That would be a slowdown from November, when the economy added 266,000 jobs with an unemployment rate of 3.5%.

US futures point to higher open as investors await key jobs data

U.S. stock index futures were higher Friday morning as world markets rally on the back of easing tensions in the Middle East.

At around 3:45 a.m. ET, Dow futures rose 41 points, indicating a positive open of more than 49 points. Futures on the S&P and Nasdaq were also higher.

U.S. equities hit record highs on Thursday on the back of the easing tensions. Tech shares outperformed with Apple jumping more than 2%. Chinese data showed Thursday that iPhone sales rose 18% in December in the country.

The House passed a resolution to limit President Donald Trump’s war powers against Tehran on Thursday, with many lawmakers concerned about the prospect of another escalation following the U.S. killing of Iran’s top general Qasem Soleimani last week.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday that the plane that crashed in Iran earlier this week, killing 176 people, was likely brought down by an Iranian missile.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump said that he could maybe wait until after the 2020 presidential election to reach the second part of a trade deal with China. Both economic powers are set to meet next week at the White House to sign the first phase of the agreement. The two countries have been at odds over commerce for about two years, when Trump first applied tariffs on Chinese solar panels and washing machines.

Investors will also be busy Friday with different sets of data releases. There will be nonfarm payrolls and unemployment figures due at 8:30 a.m. ET and wholesale inventories are scheduled for 10 a.m. ET.

Economists polled by Dow Jones expect U.S. nonfarm payrolls to grow by 160,000. That would be a slowdown from November, when the economy added 266,000 jobs with an unemployment rate of 3.5%.

There are no corporate earnings to note.
