In the early hours of last Saturday, the body of a 27-year-old woman (note: she was incorrectly identified as 33 in early reports) was found in EY’s Sydney office and since then, questions have been raised about the events of the investigation. last hours of his life. Most reports say that she was out for a drink with her colleagues and returned to the office around 7 pm to finish some work. There aren’t many details beyond that and her identity has yet to be revealed, even to EY staff. In fact, employees at the firm say EY isn’t doing much to address it.
Since Saturday morning, EY staff have complained of being left in the lurch.
News.com.au understands that since the Saturday morning tragedy, staff have only received one email saying that a team member had died in the Sydney building over the weekend.
During a previously scheduled company-wide meeting Wednesday, employees say the woman’s death was not discussed.
“They glossed over the incident at the start of the call and then talked about the EY spin-off for the remaining 50 minutes,” an employee told the anonymous social media page, Aussie Corporate.
Another current staff member said: “There is a black cloud hanging over us at EY and it has been very strange because people are skirting the event. Either they say ‘it’s so sad’, or they just don’t address it at all.”
News.com.au understands that even the financial auditors in the Sydney office are unaware of the woman’s identity.
On Reddit, a Sydney employee said he was surprised no flowers were left in the building.
“It matters a lot to me that I walked into the office this week and not even a single bouquet of flowers acknowledged the deeply tragic events of the weekend,” one Reddit user wrote.
Police continue to investigate, no foul play is suspected.
