Job Classification

Does your organization struggle with the problem of properly fitting people to jobs? Here is a handy hint for ensuring success in job placement.

Take the prospective employees you are trying to place and put them in a room with only a table and two chairs. Leave them alone for two hours, without any instruction. At the end of that time, go back and see what they are doing.

  • If they have taken the table apart in that time, put them in engineering.
  • If they are counting paperclips, assign them to accounting.
  • If they are screaming and waving their arms, send them off to manufacturing.
  • If they are talking to the chairs, personnel is a good spot for them.
  • If they are sleeping, they are management material.
  • If they are writing up the experience, send them to technical publications.
  • If they don't even look up when you enter the room, assign them to security.
  • If they try to tell you it's not as bad as it looks, send them to marketing.
  • And if they've left early, put them in sales.
