Work Culture

Read this news article in CNN:
Spanked Employee seeks $1.2million

Quick excerpts from this article:

* Alarm company says it was part of a team-building exercise.
Questin: Oru alarm company ku intha team building konjam over.

* The winners poked fun at the losers, throwing pies at them, feeding them baby food, making them wear diapers and swatting their buttocks.

Questin: Made to wear diapers?, venaam vittudunga azhuthuruven!

* Lawyers for Alarm One, said the spankings were part of a voluntary program to build camaraderie and were not discriminatory because they were given to both male and female workers.
Questins: 1. To build camaraderie a?? Dei ippdi ellam pannina camaraderie-aa, pheelings thaan develop aagum.
2. They were given to both male and female - aagha US layum oru Samathuvapuram.

ALARM ONE - A LONE ARM waiting to spank?
- ANE MORAL left?

Sari rite,
Until later.

ps: Also its been an year since I started blogging, thanks for all those visiting my blog and commenting on it as well. I treasure the support. Appuchiate. :)

Aa-ha - enna oru moolai! I would like to meet the great HR people (I assume its them) who come up with such excellent team building exercise. The idea sounds stupid, wonder who decided to implement it!!

Archana - ya should appreciate HR people's brain and their ideas (or the lack of it). I guess its innovation at work.
And thanks for the wishes & anbu.
