      Business Insider Asks Cowen Partners About Title Inflation

      The war for talent as well as economic uncertainty have prompted many firms in the past two years to attract and retain workers with hefty — but meaningless — titles like “head of innovation” or “senior vice president.” What’s more, these titles often come without added responsibilities, promotions, or pay raises.
