M1, please train the new exp hires. Trust me they’ll appreciate it and it’ll help out a lot

So no lack of utilization on your end. That’s good to hear

Probably due to efficiency gains.

Manager 1, I would 100% be interested in coming to EY risk.

What market in EY risk is short on workers?

The entire Central Region is short staff 2 through Managers.

Did they lay off a bunch of people? I know Central region hired a lot of new seniors recently. They need to get trained since I think most came from industry
