“While there are many benefits to a full-employment economy, there are a few downsides as well,” said Tom Connolly, CEO of GattiHR. “Full employment, for example, means it’s a buyer’s market. With so many employment options out there, it’s more challenging than any time in recent memory to identify, recruit and retain the top executives. The addition to our team of seasoned pros like Michael and Karen, who have earned world-class reputations, provides our clients with the competitive advantage they deserve.”
