Client developments in the first half of 2008
Including associates, the Group currently employs over 116,000 full-time people in over 2,000 offices in 106 countries. It services over 340 of the Fortune Global 500 companies, over one-half of the Nasdaq 100, over 30 of the Fortune e-50, and approximately 550 national or multinational clients in three or more disciplines. More than 320 clients are served in four disciplines and these clients account for 56% of Group revenues.
This reflects the increasing opportunities for co-ordination between activities both nationally and internationally. The Group also works with almost 260 clients in six or more countries. The Group estimates that more than 35% of new assignments in the first half of the year were generated through the joint development of opportunities by two or more Group companies.
