Investing in Our Future

COVID-19 has been impacting us all in different ways. Our new normal has been a world away from the office and the face to face interactions with clients and teammates. We are constantly reminded that our team is strong, resilient, flexible, and creative. All of which makes us excited for what the future brings. As we look to the future our sights go to campuses that are closed down with students working online and putting our traditional ways of recruiting in flux.

In consideration of our team’s and student’s health and safety, we have made the decision to postpone our Reach Beyond Summer Leadership Program until August 4-5.  Though no one knows what the environment will be like at that time, we will improvise and figure out a way to make this successfully happen. Despite being in the middle of a crisis unlike anything we have recently seen, it is crucial for any organization that is serious about growth to continue to hire and invest in the next generation. Cutting corners in recruiting and developing young talent, though tempting as it may be during difficult economic times, most always have adverse effects on an organization several years down the line. The effects of these decisions – a gap in talented professionals – can ripple through a firm for the next five or ten years, with the absence of needed leadership. That is why we will be moving forward with our annual recruitment process. It was in the last economic crisis in 2009, that we added some of our best talent and future leadership.

For those who have committed to attending our Reach Beyond program – we hope that you are able to join us in August so that we can show you the character of our team that has become so clear to us during these past few months. For those students who are dealing with the uncertainty of what campus life will look like in the Fall – we hope to meet you in the hallways, classrooms, student organizations, and career fairs whether they are in person or virtual. Be assured that despite the uncertainty in your world – we are committed to you.
