A co-worker has this plant on his desk and we're unable to identify it. Can anyone help?

Thank you!

I think your right that it's the "Gold Dust Croton", but could it maybe be the Spotted Laurel (Aucuba japonica Crotonifolia)?

The leaves would be more glossy, wider and have a different shape and serration for Aucuba.
