Selecting New Employees

Put about 100 bricks in no particular order in a closed room with an open window. Then send 2 or 3 candidates in the room and close the door. Leave them alone and come back after 6 hours and then analyze the situation.

If they are counting the bricks -Put them in the accounts department.

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 construction.

If they are sleeping – Put them in reception

If they have broken the bricks into pieces – Put them in IT.

If they are sitting idle – Put them in human resources.

If they say they have tried different combinations, 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 on strategic planning.

And then last but not least.

If they are talking to each other and not a single brick has been moved –

Congratulate them and put them in management !!!
