Bongo anger: about 400 FCA employees attended an African drum workshop
The watchdog of the city has been attacked by his own employees after sending 400 of them to an African drum workshop.
During the session, at the QEII center in London, the staff of the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) were taught how to drum the strength of group energy & # 39; to understand.
It is thought that it cost thousands of pounds and furious staff who would rather have worked.
One employee said that the session, part of the annual meeting of the FCA, is a huge waste of money & # 39; used to be.
Another told the evening standard: & # 39; There are worse ways to make money, I admit, but it is money that is simply wasted, just on the wall.
& # 39; This is money from money that comes from fees we charge to banks – pensions, credit cards, insurance, bank accounts and mortgages have paid for it [it]. & # 39;
The FCA said: & # 39; We take short, motivational exercises to promote team building. The FCA will closely monitor all future events of this type. & # 39;
