Source? I saw the talent email this morning but missed anything about util.

45 HR requirement but from what I understand the total csh remain the same? Minus non client hours

Total is the same the 45 is what you work to be able to take PTO and holidays.

No adjusted utilization from now on. Just client service hrs

Yeah, that was from the talent call, adjusted is out.

Agreed

Does FPX count towards your adjusted utilization? Because it won't for ours

Yes but most ppl are on those only as full time projects. You shouldn't be on that as an initiative.
