While teaching some MBA students, I met a few who are specializing in HRD !
I asked them a simple question : How many HR staff does it take to change a lightbulb?
I received some interesting answers :
- One to change the light bulb.
- The second to assess the risk of the light bulb changing process.
- A third to ensure the light bulb changing process adheres to the internal compliance regime for health and safety during light bulb changes.
- A fourth to ensure that the internal purchase order procedures have been adhered with for light bulb change orders.
- A fifth to audit the supply of the light bulb following the internal purchase order procedure.
- A sixth to report back to the compliance and risk functions that the supply and audit divisions had complied with the light bulb change risk and compliance procedures.
- A seventh to monitor that the light bulb was changed by a member of staff who was cleared by the concerned department to be authorised with light bulb changing management.
- And an eighth being the most important………they are responsible for costing the light bulb changing process and being creative enough to incorporate the pricing of the eight people into their customers’ monthly billing statement without their customer noticing.
RECRUITMENT OF PILOTS
The chief of staff of the US Air Force decided that he would personally intervene in a recruiting crisis affecting all of our armed services. He directed a nearby Air Force base be opened, and that all eligible young men and women be invited.
As he and his staff were standing near a brand new Jet Fighter, a pair of twin brothers who looked like they had just stepped off a Marine Corps recruiting poster walked up to them. The chief of staff stuck out his hand and introduced himself.
He looked at the first young man and asked, “Son, what skills can you bring to the Air Force?”
The young man looks at him and says, “I’m a pilot!”
The general gets all excited, turns to his aide and says, “Get him in today, all the paper work done, everything, do it!”
The aide hustles the young man off. The general looks at the second young man and asked, “What skills to you bring to the Air Force?”
The young man says, “I chop wood!”
“Son,” the general replies, “we don’t need wood choppers in the Air Force, what do you know how to do?”
“I chop wood!”
“Young man,” huffs the general, “you are not listening to me, we don’t need wood choppers; this is the 21st century!”
“Well,” the young man says, “you hired my brother!”
“Of course we did,” says the general, “he’s a pilot!”
The young man rolls his eyes and says, “So what! I have to chop it before he can pile it!”
I hope you enjoyed reading as much as I enjoyed posting these funnies ! Keep Smiling !
