How to Place New Employees in an Organization:

  1. Put 400 bricks in a closed room.
  2. Put your new hires in the room and close the door.
  3. Leave them alone and come back after 6 hours.
  4. Then analyse the situation:
  •     If they are counting the bricks, put them in the accounting.
  •     If they are recounting them, put them in auditing.
  •     If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks put them in           engineering.
  •     If they are arranging the bricks in some strange 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 say they have tried different combinations, they are looking for more, yet not a brick has been 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 strategic planning.
  •     If they are talking to each other, and not a single brick has been moved, congratulate them and put them in top management.
Finally, if they have surrounded themselves with bricks in such a way that they can neither be seen nor heard from, put them in parliament.
