“Brick Method” of HiringI’ll ask for forgiveness up front. This may have been running around the Web for a while, but I just saw it and had to chuckle. Since part of my blog interests center around business, leadership, fun, and management I thought I would throw this out for…well, for fun.

How To Properly Assign New Employees

Put 400 bricks in a room. Put your new hires in the room and close the door. Leave them alone and come back after 6 hours. Then analyze the situation:

  1. If they are counting the bricks, put them in the Accounting Department.
  2. If they are recounting them, put them in Auditing.
  3. If they have messed up the whole place with bricks, put them in Engineering.
  4. If they are arranging the bricks in some strange order, put them in Planning.
  5. If they are throwing the bricks at each other, put them in Operations.
  6. If they are sleeping, put them in Security.
  7. If they have broken the bricks into pieces, put them in IT.
  8. If they are sitting idle, put them in Human Resources.
  9. If they say they have tried different combinations, they are looking for more, yet not a brick has been moved, put them in Sales.
  10. If they have already left for the day, put them in Management.
  11. If they are staring out of the window, put them in Strategic Planning.
  12. If they are talking to each other, and not a single brick has been moved, congratulate them and put them in Top Management.
