The first half of 2013 took an unexpected turn for Klynveld Peat Marwick Goerdeler back in April when we all learned that former partner Scott London had shared material non-public information about the firm's audit clients with his watch-concert ticket guy/golfing buddy. While there has been almost no client backlash — the firm hasn't lost any clients in the Pacific Southwest — the betrayal has stung the firm's partners and while some don't know what all the fuss is about, it's difficult to think about KPMG without throwing "insider trading" into the conversation.
So a morale boost to kick off the second half of the year wouldn't be such a bad thing, would it? And while kuddling may do wonders for stress, high blood pressure, and relationships, there's really only one thing that will get the rest of 2013 off on the right foot.
Yes, we're talking about Omaha Steaks and a number of people have gotten in touch with us about the news including some that appear to be new to this token of appreciation:
I'm surprised that no one has mentioned the Omaha Steaks that KPMG is giving employees and partners as gifts for our hard work and dedication to the firm. I find it amusing and a little funny. Thanks KPMG!
6 steaks, 4 pork chops, 6 burgers, 8 dogs, 4 chicken breasts, all Omaha Steaks of course.
