Should Ernst & Young have done this?
I think truth and honesty in business are vital.
I can therefore say in all truthfulness and honesty that I think Ernst & Young is a great company.
They have some tremendous people working for them and the students I’ve met over the years have all been fantastic.
If I’m really honest and truthful though I have to say that in my opinion there is a bit of a question mark over some of the performances in the video below.
The video was apparently taken at an EY recruitment day event and I’ll leave it up to you to decide whether you think that EY did a good job on the song-writing side of things and whether the employees that joined in with the singing, hand clapping and swaying with such rhythmic precision should stick to doing consulting and client work.
Now to be fair it has to be said that the recruitment event where the EY song was filmed was held 12 years ago so things have no doubt changed since then with the recruitment techniques used. It’s not clear though whether there was a slump in people applying for positions with EY 11 years ago.
Now, all of you that have just had a great weekend and are reading this in the office on a Monday morning, join together and start singing “Oh Happy Days, Oh Happy Days…”
