At the Digiday Agency Summit in New Orleans this week, executives from a variety of agencies such as Razorfish, Havas, CP+B and Digitas gathered to discuss some of the most pressing challenges that they face today. Nearly four years since WPP chief Martin Sorrell called the agency talent situation “criminal,” attracting and retaining talent still remains one of the agency world’s biggest headaches.
