Heard through the grapevine that OPRG has begun the process of planning to consolidate Ketchum, Porter Novelli and Fleishmann in North America. That layoffs are coming again!!

I wonder if the House of Rep investigation into Porter Novelli’s HHS contract is a factor?

I’m curious on this one too. I feel like I’ve seen Ketchum hiring a lot lately, and with how difficult it is to get OPRG to approve a hire that wouldn’t happen if they’re consolidating?

I don’t think that will happen, I’ve heard senior leadership talk about how bad the BCW merger was and that they would not do it in the US and key markets as the brands are so important.
