The unemployment rate is nearly back to pre-pandemic levels, and demand for executive talent remains strong.  While inflation is driving greater economic uncertainty—and driving up compensation at every level—we remain cautiously optimistic about the remainder of 2022.  A larger geopolitical issue could surely sidetrack the economy, but employers will likely continue to seek talent that can alter or accelerate the trajectory of their business.

Happy Spring!!

Alan J. Kaplan, Founder & CEO
