If there is one thing TS has mastered over the years, it is achieving a good ‘work/life balance’ lots of life and as little work as possible. At mid-tier firm Grant Thornton however, it seems that the balance is not as generous on the life side.
At an awards ceremony held last year, the firm allegedly presented a prize for the ‘most chargeable hours in the UK’. The prize for the work junkie was, wait for it, a book on work/life balance. Now TS does not dispute the book’s power to encourage more time spent with the family and keeping 18-hour days to a minimum.
But if incentivising work/life balance was the aim, maybe something like a holiday to the Bahamas would have made more sense if not less cheeky.
