Talent Insider Monthly

October 2018

Dear Friend,,


It has been unseasonably cool in most of our markets, I hope this finds you enjoying the fresh air and change in seasons.

With the growth and change many of our client companies are experiencing, there has come unique demands on talent.  Specifically, most companies are either dealing with the scarcity of talent, and/or they are making the difficult choice to transition people due to cost, changes in strategy or merger activity.  My guess is you are dealing with one or both of these challenges.  To that end, we are providing two targeted articles for your consumption:

  • Are You Putting Your Organization at Risk? – in this article we offer a pragmatic blueprint to ensure your organizations strategy and growth is never constrained by a lack of talent.
  • Reduction in Force 101 – we offer the definitive guide to conducting layoffs and effective outplacement.

We are also excited to highlight a new member of the CMP team, provide dates for our Future of Work events, open positions, our Mentor Rings program, and key sponsorships.

As a friend of the firm, please do not hesitate to contact us if there is anything we can do for you.

Much regards,

Joe Frodsham | President
