In a large multinational company ..............
A fire alarm rang at 4 PM in a large office
when almost all employeeswere in office (approx 5000).
As usual the entire office was evacuated within 3mins
& all employees gathered outside the office in the designated area
waiting for further announcement.
The Security Officer in charge made the following announcement:
"Dear employees -
with sincere regret I have been asked to announce that
for many of you it will be your last evacuation drill.
Due to the recession
the company is laying off almost 50% of its employees.
So when this announcement finishes,
I ask all of you to move back into the building
and if your swipe card does not work
then it means you have been laidoff
in which case you will not be allowed inside
and all your belongings will be couriered to you by tomorrow.
The Company has used this innovative approach as we didn't want to fillup the email box with lay-off mails and good bye mails in thousands
& also to avoid any fight inside the office
and the consequent security issue for all staff.
Hope you have had a rewarding career with us
and all the best ahead.
Please move back in & try your luck".
