In last month's column (2011: The Year Of Service?), we looked at market data gathered from the previous six months that reflected a services community on an economic rebound (supported by Automatic Data Processing [ADP] survey
results concluding that employment in the services
sector had increased by 779,000 since September
2010 — roughly 129,800 new jobs per month). We were, therefore, able to conclude that service is and will continue to be a key contributor to the overall health and prosperity of the global economy.
