Remember this “improvement”, where an auto supplier was claiming to save money by getting rid of some cleaning staff and having engineers take their own trash from their desks to the central trash bin?
I got an update from the engineer who reported it to me:
“Mice were spotted recently in the office. It would be funny if files were damaged or exterminators now had to be hired to fix this new issue because a wonderful cost save.”
I wonder if they'll again claim a cost savings if they go back to a dedicated cleaning crew?
