Barbara, as I have looked and pondered the concerns and emails given to me, I have come up with some key facts that will solve your problem. Prior to beginning I would like to address that what you are facing is not just an “accountant” problem but also a teamwork problem. What I mean by that is, you cant expect your company to progress or succeed when half of your workers are scared of working with their coworkers and the other half don’t care about their fellow team members in order to help out. It’s very easy to point fingers and state the issue is poor training but the true root of the problem is lack of team workmanship.

Training and Orientation – Mr. Randall stated that the new accountants do not receive any kind of formal training when they are first hired and are overwhelmed by the amount of work that has to be done.

Retreat- There is poor communication skills throughout the company, Human Resources does not get information across to partners correctly and partners do not get points across to human resources. Decisions are made with no explanation on why it as been decided or there is no vote on whether It should go through. Employees seem to not like other VPs or the decisions they made. As well as some groups do not understand the level of time jobs are needed to have. I was caught up on some partners partaking in inappropriate behavior in the workforce, and yet nothing has been done about it. What this company needs is some good old company retreat. In this said retreat the company will enjoy bonding activities and new training reminding them of the values and ethics the company upholds. The point of this retreat is to have each employee be able to voice their concerns (in a safe environment) and have their peers voice in a resolution. To mention you give them a new training on the company just to keep it fresh on their
