“These results demonstrate the continued progress made in the business against our strategic objectives,” nmcn chief executive John Homer said. “Our focus on profit improvement and cash generation continues to show returns.
“We continue to invest significantly in the development of our people and the evolution of our employer brand. It is our firm belief that our people are the overarching differentiator in the service that we provide and the primary driver for our continued success.
