Taking Stock - Andersens taken to the cleaners.

When Arthur Andersen recently announced it was relaxing its attitudes and allowing staff to dress down to work, there was a feeling that the company was forward thinking. But it has recently come to light that since the relaxed attitude was introduced, the number of staff wearing suits to work has plummeted. And, as the firm witnessed a reduction in the number of staff required to wear a suit to work, it also introduced an internal dry cleaning service. Nice idea in theory, but TS has been informed that since the service was launched, there has hardly been an overwhelming demand. It just goes to show it’s all very well being forward looking, but you can’t beat a little joined-up thinking. ?:
