Re: Those Shortsighted Savings Will Cost You Dearly
Partnerships are a reality. Collaborations are a reality. Two companies may need to work together on projects, account payments, approvals, etc. Many times a company will create separate groups: employees who deal with IBM and, separately, employees who deal with MSFT. It is normal for these employees to collaborate with their customers and vendors on a very close basis.
The best examples are employees of audit companies, which by the very nature of their tasks, can't be the audited company's employees.
