Mr. Bosworth was fed up with the chronic grumbling of his employees, so he did some thinking and devised a clever plan. He announced a Complaint Contest in which employees were told to write their biggest work-related complaint on a notecard and post it on the bulletin board in the break room. Eager participants filled the board with complaints ranging from frivolous to furious in response to Mr. Bosworth's promise to give the authors of the top four complaints a three day, all expense paid vacation at a nearby resort.
The cards were then numbered, and employees were given the opportunity to vote for what they viewed as the biggest issue presented. Employee morale skyrocketed as co-workers bantered back and forth over the entries, and put forth their best campaign efforts to secure the most votes for their complaint.
Mr. Bosworth smiled broadly as he congratulated the chosen winners, giving each them not only their promised resort reservations, but also an assignment to return to work following their vacation with a report detailing no less than three reasonable and well thought out options of ways to resolve their complaint.~*~*~*~*~*~*~
