Taking Stock: Massaging the figures

TS was amused to see that travel and expense management outfit, Concur, had despatched 100 massage therapists to accountancy offices across the land in order to bring a touch of Christmas cheer to the stressed hordes.

The gesture was made to try and alleviate the pressures felt by those tasked with processing some of the 75,000-plus expense claims in the last working week before Christmas.

Concur’s David Vine said: “We know it’s a critical time of year for employees to tackle the back-log of expenses and our data reveals that from the 15th December, accountants in the UK are processing an average of 15,000 expense reports per day. Employees want a little extra cash in their pockets for the holidays meaning accountants are under pressure to process reports quickly.”

All power to their hunched shoulders and healing hands.

Here at TS Towers we have to rely on less holistic methods like tea. And mince pies. And perhaps the odd very, very small dry sherry.
