Mid-Size U.S. Employers Almanac From Plunkett Research 2020

March 2020

HOUSTON, Texas – Plunkett Research, Ltd. announces an important market research and competitive analysis report on trends affecting job seekers, Mid-Size U.S. Employers Almanac, 2020 edition.

As of 2019, The U.S. was enjoying very robust economic growth, and the unemployment rate was extremely low. Wages were responding by rising in virtually all industries, and there were significant shortages of workers in fields ranging from trucking to retailing to computer technology. The Coronavirus epidemic of 2020 changed the outlook for everything, and the end result will not be clear from some time. Many outstanding employers may initiate hiring freezes or layoffs.

At Plunkett Research, we believe that consumer habits will change at least for the mid-term, and in some ways permanently, as a result of this global pandemic. The trend towards shopping via e-commerce will accelerate, and that means more jobs in logistics, warehousing and delivery services. Gig economy jobs will grow, particularly those in on-demand delivery of groceries and meals. Companies that provide services that support online education are likely to grow as well. Meanwhile, traditional retailing may continue its long-term decline. The travel industry suffered miserably as a result of the Coronavirus, and hotels, cruises and airlines may see structural changes and a long-term reduction in business as a result. Conference centers and sports venues also may see a long-term or permanent drop in attendance, as consumers are going to be less interested in being among large crowds.
