Laying a Strong Foundation and Building New Careers

The most recent Deloitte Cincinnati USA survey of the region's 100 largest privately held companies – a diverse collection ranging from logistics firms to manufacturers to health care insurers – showed that 98 percent of the companies called finding qualified workers a challenge. - Cincinnati Enquirer, May 2016.
