I think we definitely have seen a transformation in regards to titles. You backtrack fifteen, twenty years ago, it was labor relations to personnel to human resources. Now with titles of people strategist, talent management, chief HR officer, newer, innovative, sexier titles maybe. But I think the work is still relatively the same.

Global HR leaders are being sought out constantly. I have definitely seen our clients reaching out to us to add value at more the senior level and to look at more retained and exclusive searches for VP's of HR, chief people officers. So we are segmenting our business to look at more senior level searches and either be the top HR person or running a division. We have definitely seen a significant increase.

I have had many clients over the last six to nine months say the type of talent that we've presented and our approach to working and partnering with them has been second to none. That is something that I think we are very, very proud of.
