|Segment Reporting [Abstract]|
In the past year, the Company has allocated capital to build out its Professional Search and Interim operations through the acquisition of Lucas Group and Patina. These acquisitions provided the Company with the opportunity to reassess how it manages its RPO & Professional Search segment. Given the Company’s strategy and development of separate financial and operational metrics for the Professional Search & Interim and RPO operations, the Company’s chief operating decision maker has begun to regularly make separate resource allocation decisions between Professional Search & Interim and RPO. Therefore, on May 1, 2022, the Company changed the composition of its global segments and under the new reporting format, the RPO & Professional Search segment has been separated into two segments; Professional Search & Interim and RPO. Revenues are directly attributed to a segment and expenses not directly associated with a specific segment are allocated based on the most relevant measures applicable, including revenues, headcount and other factors. Due to this change, the Company completed a quantitative assessment for potential goodwill impairment both prior and subsequent to the aforementioned change and determined there was no goodwill impairment. The presentation of operating results prior to May 1, 2022 has been revised to conform to the new segment reporting.
The Company now has eight reportable segments: Consulting, Digital, Executive Search North America, Executive Search EMEA, Executive Search Asia Pacific, Executive Search Latin America, Professional Search & Interim and RPO.
The Company’s eight reportable segments operate through the following five lines of business:
Executive Search is managed by geographic regional leaders. Worldwide operations for Consulting, Digital, Professional Search & Interim and RPO are managed by their Chief Executive Officers. The Executive Search geographic regional leaders and the Chief Executive Officers of Consulting, Digital, Professional Search & Interim and RPO report directly to the Chief Executive Officer of the Company. The Company also operates Corporate to record global expenses.
The Company evaluates performance and allocates resources based on the Company’s chief operating decision maker (“CODM”) review of 1) fee revenue and 2) adjusted earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (“Adjusted EBITDA”). To the extent that such costs or charges occur, Adjusted EBITDA excludes restructuring charges, integration/acquisition costs, certain separation costs and certain non-cash charges (goodwill, intangible asset and other impairment charges). The CODM is not provided asset information by reportable segment.
Financial highlights are as follows:
