Why anything if green choice?

No

Yes, roughly $5 at the end of my stay if I opt for green choice. It's an expensed item for us; not sure if you have the same.

Yes, $5 per each night room is made. None for green choice.

$5 per day. Also, FB really needs a search feature. Really, how hard is it? This topic comes up every week.

You can expense tip.

like

Out of consideration for the staff who have to clean up after me or if I had to ask for toiletries during my stay. It couldn't hurt giving, esp when it's a valid travel expense

Also expense item at EY. Agree with D1 for one $5 tip at end of green stay as that's one housekeeping remake after I check out

We can expense it , so why not just give $5 at the end of each stay??

I definitely tip 5 bucks at the end of my stay. I also used to work as a house keeper, so I turn down the bedsheets and throw the towels in a pile and throw everything into one trash to make it easier on them.

Hoping to get my PHR in the next year or so. Outside of employer reimbursement, are there other opportunities for this to get funded? I know SHRM Foundation offers scholarships for the CP, but I am looking for PHR specific help. Thank you! :)

Can’t believe I’m saying this...but I need to get back to office and work with people. Working at home is making me realize how much I miss the routine of the week when I had to drive or fly to work. Basically, I’m ready to travel for work. Not the same amount as Pre-Covid, but 50% 50% balance would be nice if the industry moves to this type of consulting model. Thoughts?

Question for EY moms - my husband and I are thinking about starting a family soon, so I was looking up the parental leave policy to see what my options are. I know some firms have clawback clauses that require you to come back to work for a specific period of time or else you have to pay back the salary you received while on leave, but I couldn’t find anything similar in the EY policy. Does this mean EY doesn’t have a clawback clause for parental leave, or is it just hidden away somewhere? TIA!
