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.

Hey Guys. Regarding the forced layoffs in PS. It’s high time we unite and hit them back. I’ll request all people who’ll receive the video connect email from PS to do one important thing. Use a a pen camera or a hidden camera(small) in your pocket before attending the call and record the call and events. These peoples should not be spared. Try to get some evidence and let’s expose to public media and other legal teams. You can do this anonymously thereby saving others from this crap.
