We work with companies of all sizes, but Robert Half is a particularly smart staffing option for small and midsize businesses. The cost of a bad hiring decision can affect these companies disproportionately compared to larger firms that may have a deeper bench of workers from which to draw. Our clients value our personal service approach, our expertise at assessing skills and our deep talent networks.
Protiviti is serving an expanding client base. All of Protiviti's key services grew nicely during the quarter, most notably IT consulting, risk and compliance, and internal audit. Client demand was driven by improving market conditions in a more stringent regulatory environment.
At this time, we will be happy to answer questions. We would request that you please limit yourself as usual to one question and a single follow-up, as needed. If time permits, we will try to return to you later in the call if you have additional questions. Thank you.
