HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - November 30, 2010) - Plunkett Research, Ltd. has released its newest market research and competitive analysis report, The Almanac of American Employers, 2011 edition, which identifies and lists the most promising major employers in the United States. The book includes Plunkett's annual list of "7 Keys for Employer Research."

According to Jack W. Plunkett, CEO of Plunkett Research, Ltd., "Our editors have once again compiled a thorough guide to the best, fastest-growing major employers in the United States."

Major trends affecting American Employers and job seekers discussed in Plunkett's report include:

  • Cost control is a major concern for employers -- Downsizing and consolidation through mergers continue.
  • Unemployment will remain high.
  • Consumers spend less and save more, affecting a wide variety of companies.
  • Technology continues to create sweeping changes in the workplace.
  • Continued growth in outsourcing, including supply chain and logistics services.
  • Millions working as temps.
  • Offshoring and the globalization of business.
  • Older Americans will delay retirement and work longer, while many employers find older employees desirable.
