‘Lunch? Aw, you gotta be kidding. Lunch is for wimps’

For those of you too young to remember, it was Gordon Gekko in the 1987 film ‘Wall Street’ who gave us the classic line stated above.

That was over quarter of a century ago, in a world so very different from today, but, we're wondering, if we are still suffering the hunger pangs of that lean legacy?

So lets have a virtual show of hands auditors, how often do you actually take a lunch break away from your desk?

Is 'Business Kissing' a thing in the Audit Industry?

Our Audit Agony Aunt had an interesting encounter recently where she bumped into an old colleague from her time at EY who unexpectedly went to greet her with an embrace. This got her thinking about an article she wrote several years ago about 'Business Kissing' - the practice of greeting colleagues or clients with a kiss on the cheek (or both!) rather than a more formal business greeting.

We're interested in your thoughts on this, have you noticed 'Business Kissing' gaining popularity in the Audit Industry? Or are the greetings you see still on a more formal level? Let us know your experiences in the comments below.

The full article can be read here: http://www.careersinaudit.com/article/crossing-the-audit-threshold-business-kissing-version-2-0/

Between internships and my current audit experience, I've had the opportunity to witness client interactions with auditors in Big 4 firms as well as regional firms. I have not once seen an instance of business kissing. I think in most situations it could be considered sexual harrassment. However, I believe that if colleagues have a close relationship, business kissing could be appropriate. But again, there is still that sexual harrassment risk. As far as business kissing between a client and auditor, I would think it inappropriate because if the auditor is that close to the client (referring to the relationship not proximity when kissing), it may call into question the auditor's independence. I also imagine that in other countries which have different customs business kissing could be okay but I don't know enough about foreign business customs to give a definitive opinion.
