We have teams of scientists working in R & D labs at numerous sites around the world. Highly skilled academics working on new, leading edge technology, advancing the cause of science to the benefit of mankind everywhere.
So yesterday, you can imagine my 'surprise' when this little gem arrived from global HQ, announcing a project they had spent many months & unlimited resources on. In an effort to ensure that we remain buoyant in the face of the GFC, they have released an initiative that will maintain or increase profitability during these challenging times. If spending can be realigned through FY09 & therefore maintain our financial health, we will apparently emerge from this economic crisis stronger than our competitors. This innovative programme will be rolled out across all levels of the Organization, including the CEO & Board of Directors.
And drum roll please, the main thrust of this initiative is -
REUSE ALL PAPER CLIPS INSTEAD OF THROWING THEM AWAY.
Nothing more to add really, just a feeling of incredible pride in the many teams of Rocket Scientists who worked so diligently day & night to produce this masterpiece of economic reasoning. Happy, happy days!!
