Our second Research and Analysis Core (RAC) training of the summer concluded yesterday. 18 of our new junior and mid-level hires (from 7 offices) traveled to Boston and enjoyed learning about quality management, our extracurricular committees, how to craft the perfect elevator pitch, the firm's favorite Excel functions, and the keys to success at CRA. To our newcomers, welcome! Up next: our third of four RAC sessions - Boston will host 50+ newcomers for another exclusive two-day training!
RAC ‘n’ roll! We recently held our first of four Research and Analysis Core Trainings for 2019. Participants attended sessions to learn about our culture and heritage, practice their client skills through networking opportunities and workshops, and understand how daily project work impacts CRA’s bottom line. Thank you to all who made RAC a successful two days of learning, socializing, and professional development; we are excited for our newcomers to start their journeys with us. Next up: our July session where we will welcome nearly 25 new colleagues! #CRAAlwaysLearning
