Why don't we treat auditors like clients?
So, why don’t we treat auditors the same way that we would welcome a prospective or existing client? I’ve heard about auditors being put in basements, messy storage rooms, small rooms, and rooms with poor lighting, heating, or cooling. In addition, employees won’t talk to (or are even afraid of!) the auditors, so the auditors may be ignored. Water, coffee, tea or even a small bowl of snacks are common niceties for guests, but for an auditor? Forget it. As you can imagine, being an auditor is a hard enough job, and this type of treatment at a worksite makes their job much harder. Auditors are human, so this type of neglect can affect them and their impression of our businesses.
