A Corporate Story:

As posted in a WhatsApp Group

Every day, a small ๐Ÿœ Ant arrives at work very early and starts work immediately.

๐Ÿœ She produces a lot and she was happy.

The Chief, ๐Ÿฏ a Tiger, was surprised to see that ๐Ÿœ the Ant was working without supervision.

๐Ÿฏ He thought if the ๐Ÿœ Ant can produce so much without supervision, wouldnโ€™t she produce even more if she had a supervisor!

So ๐Ÿฏ he recruited a ๐Ÿ Bee who had extensive experience as ๐Ÿ‘ท supervisor and who was famous for ๐Ÿ“ writing excellent reports.

The ๐Ÿ Beeโ€™s first decision was to set up a ๐Ÿ”” clocking in attendance system.

๐Ÿ He also needed a secretary to help him write and type his reports and he recruited a ๐Ÿ‡Rabbit , who managed the archives and monitored โ˜Ž all phone calls.

๐Ÿฏ The Tiger was delighted with the ๐Ÿ Bee’s reports and asked him to produce ๐Ÿ“Š graphs to describe production rates and to analyse ๐Ÿ“‰ trends, so that he could use them for ๐Ÿ“ presentations at Boardโ€˜s meetings.

So the ๐Ÿ Bee had to buy a ๐Ÿ’ป new computer and a Laser printer and recruited a ๐Ÿˆ Cat to manage the ๐ŸŒ IT department.

The๐Ÿœ Ant, who had once been so productive and relaxed, hated this new plethora of paperwork and meetings which used up most of her timeโ€ฆ!

๐Ÿฏ The Tiger came to the conclusion that it was high time to nominate a person in charge of the department where the ๐Ÿœ Ant worked.

The position was given to the ๐Ÿ’ Monkey, whose first decision was to buy an Air Conditioner and an ergonomic ๐Ÿ’บ chair for his office.

The new person in charge, ๐Ÿ’ the Monkey, also needed a ๐Ÿ’ป computer and a personal assistant , who he brought from his previous department, to help him prepare a ๐Ÿ“‘ Work and ๐Ÿ“ƒ ‘Budget Control Strategic Optimisation Plan’ โ€ฆ

The Department where the ๐Ÿœ Ant works is now a sad place, where nobody laughs anymore and everybody has become upset…

It was at that time that the ๐Ÿ Bee convinced the boss, ๐Ÿฏ the Tiger; of the absolute necessity to start a climatic study of the environment .

Having reviewed the charges for running the ๐Ÿœ Antโ€™s department , the ๐Ÿฏ Tiger found out that the Production was much less than before.

So he recruited the ๐Ÿค Owl, a prestigious and renowned consultant to carry out an audit and suggest solutions.

๐Ÿค The Owl spent three months in the department and came up with an enormous report, in several volumes, that concluded…
โ€œ The Department is overstaffed …โ€

Guess who the ๐Ÿฏ Tiger fires first?

Of course, ๐Ÿœ the Ant………,

“….because she showed lack of motivation and had a negative attitude. ”
Does this ring a bell or sound familiar?๐Ÿ˜œ๐Ÿ˜œ

I found this really worth reading.

I hope you did too
