The top 10 growth Industries

A report this month from the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) predicts that department stores, newspaper publishing and the postal service are among the top 10 industries in the US headed for extinction, while management, scientific and technical consulting, employment services, full-service restaurants and a range of healthcare-related service industries will experience the most wage and salary employment growth by 2018.

The top 10 growth industries:

1. Management, scientific and technical consulting services
2. Offices of physicians
3. Computer systems design and related services
4. Other general merchandise stores
5. Employment services
6. Local government, excluding education and hospitals
7. Home health care services
8. Services for the elderly and persons with disabilities
9. Nursing care facilities
10. Full-service restaurants

The growth in the first industry is what is most important to me:  Management and Consultant Services.

The need for new methods and processes are paramount in our ongoing adjustment to the changes that 2010 brings. We need to take this knowledge and apply it to how we approach the marketing for our services.
