    How to place new employees properly in roles

    Step 1. Put 400 bricks in a closed room.
    Step 2. Put your new employees in the room and close the door.
    Step 3. Leave them alone and come back after 6 hours.

    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 Government.
