Another Year Around the Sun: The Best of HCM in 2016

As the year comes to a close, it’s natural to reflect back on the highlights here at our firm over the past 365 days. At Hord Coplan Macht, we believe that each one of those days tells an important part of our success story. It doesn’t stop there either; 2017 marks our 40th anniversary and we plan to keep building off the successes of 2016 to continue to learn, advance, and do great work for our clients in 2017 and beyond.

In the spirit of reflection, here are our top 5 blog posts that you helped make the most popular of the year:

  1. The Cool Box Feature Series

While not technically one specific blog, this series that highlights some of the people and personalities of HCM proved to be some of the most popular and engaging content of the year.

  1. Find Your Balance, Grow Your Skills. Life at Hord Coplan Macht

What’s it like to work at HCM? We decided to ask our staff for a first-hand look into life at Hord Coplan Macht. From company culture to work-life balance, they sure had a lot to say.

Each year is another opportunity to learn, grow, and tackle challenging and innovative work for our clients. We are so thankful for each and every one of those opportunities – and we can’t wait to see what the next 365 days have to offer.
