Brick Placement: How To Recruit Employees

Recruiting the right person in the right place

Place your employees where they belong - 1 brick at a time


[Does your company have a problem in recruiting the right person for the right position? Try this simple experiment to place your employees where they belong...]


Put around 100 bricks in some particular order in a closed room with an open window. Then send 2-3 candidates into the room and close it from outside. Leave them alone, come back after 6 hours and then analyze the situation:

If they are counting and recounting the bricks - Put them in Accounts Dept.

If they are wrongly counting the bricks - Put them in Stores Dept.

If they have messed up the whole place with the bricks - Put them in Engineering.

If they are arranging the bricks in some other 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 Resource Dept.

If they have thrown the bricks out of the window - Put them in Materials Dept.

If they are clinging on to the bricks - Put them in Treasury.

If they say they have tried different combinations, yet not a brick has 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 Shipping.

If they are searching for defects - Put them in Quality Control.

If they are talking to each other and not a brick has been moved - Put them in Top Management...
