Weekly Wrap – 23rd October 2014


Hi I am Tom McLeod, Co-Founder of McLeod Governance.

This is what I would be thinking about this week.

No Choice But to Resign

In this last week I received a very interesting email from a subscriber detailing circumstances where their integrity was being challenged.

The subscriber asked me what should they do in that situation?

I advised them that they had no choice but to resign working with that organisation.

And it is the resignation of auditors which is today’s topic in our Weekly Wrap.

When Would You Resign?

When would you resign?

What criteria do you use to resign other than seeking an alternative or better employment?

For me there are three circumstances where I think you have no other option but to resign.

Firstly as was the case with the subscriber when your integrity is challenged.

Secondly when you have limited access to information or people or continued limited access to information or people and management does not support you.

And the third one is an interesting one for me – it is where you are being undervalued in your organisation.

Now that is not monetarily undervalued but it may be where you see after a period of time that your recommendations are not being implemented or not being taken seriously.

Sign of a Good Auditor

Whatever the circumstances are a good auditor should always have their resignation in their top pocket.
