About to join KPMG Lighthouse in a couple weeks. Received an email about a KPMG lakehouse on campus event in Orlando. I think it is supposed to be an orientation event. With Omicron looming and unvaxxed toddlers at home, I am wondering if I can say NO to this travel. Any KPMG folks who know if this is avoidable and not going to put me in bad light?

You can absolutely say no. Do what works for you.

No one is compelled to travel. Most travel is not happening now anyway. Lots of events have been cancelled due to the current omicron hysteria.

It’s optional, but the in person orientation at Lakehouse is awesome and worth your time. I’ve been to Lakehouse twice since September, once for new hire orientation, and it was great to start in person and meet a few people. The facility is top notch and vaccinations are required to attend and they test onsite.

You can request the virtual option but I would highly recommend you do the lake house trip. The food is amazing and you get to build friendships and network. I wish I could go!

They cancelled the Lakehouse orientation for January new hires. I could see this continuing since numbers for Covid aren’t changing much.

Do they still make people share rooms lol?

No, since Lakehouse was completed, all training has one person per room.
