How to assign employees

Does your company have a problem in recruiting the right guy for the right position? Try this simple experiment to place your employees where they belong!

Place some 100 bricks in a closed room with an open window. Then send two or three candidates into the room and close it from outside. Come back after 6 hours and then analyse the situation:
  • If they are counting and recounting the bricks, put them in the Accounts Department.
  • If they are wrongly counting the bricks, put them in Stores and Inventory.
  • If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks, put them in Engineering.
  • If they are arranging the bricks in some different order, put them in Planning.
  • If they are throwing the bricks at each other, put them in Operations.
  • If they are sleeping, put them in Security.
  • If they have broken the bricks into pieces, put them in Information Technology.
  • If they are sitting idle, put them in Human Resources.
  • If they have thrown the bricks out of the window, put them in the Materials Department.
  • If they are clinging on to the bricks, place them in the Treasury.
  • If they say they have tried different combinations (yet not a brick has moved), put them in Sales.
  • If they have already left for the day, put them in Marketing.
  • If they are staring out of the window, put them in Shipping.
  • If they are searching for defects, put them in Quality Control.
  • If they are talking to each other and not a brick has been moved, put them in Top Management.

You forgot one - If they have "bricked" each other to death, put them in the ground !!!
