During the week ending 19 Nov, we completed 136 updates. Year over year revenues for this group were down 8% – reflecting the lingering effects of the recession.

Included in these updates is the linkage to LinkedIn contacts. LinkedIn continues to be the strongest with the US based companies. The weakest segment is the retail sector where the workforce is often more temporary and not necessarily fits the professional profile of a LinkedIn contact. Approximately 13% of the employees in this group are reported in LinkedIn

The largest firms updated this week were:

  • Apple, Inc.
  • Japan Post Bank
  • Dentsu
  • Rolls Royce Group
  • Nintendo Company
  • Tokyo Gas
  • Gerdau S.A.
  • Balfour Beatty
  • Mitsui O.S.K. Lines
  • Obayashi
