Talent Insider Monthly

July 2018

Dear Friend,,


We are truly in an interesting world and business environment.  Many of our clients and industries are growing and thriving.  While others (e.g. Healthcare) are also dealing with significant ambiguity. 

I hope you are taking some time for a summer break, and a deep breath, as we move head-first into the second half of 2018.

In this issue of the Talent Insider, we focus on key areas that you may find timely:

We also share the dates of an exciting Lunch and Learn series on the Future of Work, open roles we are sourcing, news of our revamped CMP website, and an exciting addition to our CMP Executive Coaching Cadre’.
