Game playing with expense reports is a widespread problem which many organizations choose to ignore. This is unfortunate, for if ignored, it will only grow. Creativity when preparing an expense reimbursement request is not a desirable approach. Yet, from the numerous stories shared with the speaker by AP Now’s readers, that is precisely what is going on in many, many organizations. This course will start with a discussion of the magnitude of this issue and why every organization should take it seriously.
