This is the story of the Missing underwear. We are yet to confirm if it is a work of fiction or not. However, we believe it will speak to you. Enjoy.
The owner of an underwear making company was having a tough time with shortage in his factory.
On departure for home, all worker’s bags were searched and everything always seemed to be ok. All security measures you can think of were put in place. Auditors were called in, but still no one was caught red handed with even a single underwear yet stock continued to disappear. All workers, including management, were checked on departure, and funny enough, each was wearing just one underwear, and no one was caught with more than one pair.
Then one day, a very Junior worker (the tea Girl) thought out of the box . It was an idea that was so thought provoking to the boss. Why not check people, as they come instead of when they go out? Her boss listened to her and the security officer was advised to check all staff on arrival. He got the shock of his life when he found that all the staff, including management, had no underwear on them on arrival at work.
Today that tea girl is the head of Innovation & Strategy at the factory and Associated Group of Companies!
Lesson: Do things differently if you want a different result.
