Our chief exec’s ‘Back to the Floor’ exercise resumed today with him spending the morning with the CJotD recycling team.
Readers of CJotD #59 will remember that ‘Back to the Floor’ was an internal engagement project that sees our leader share the roles and duties of all CJotD-ers as part of a tour around the teams. In reality, B2tF (as it has become known) is a sub-campaign of our ‘back to basics’ initiative – a programme launched in response to accusations that our editorial team had become overly distracted by external events.
Our chief executive relished taking the project to a new level today, stepping away from his plush 500 square-foot office and joining the recycling team in the CJotD basement.
As you will no doubt have guessed, the recycling team’s duties aren’t about cardboard, plastic or discarded food, rather taking old, worn or obsolete ‘so bad they’re good’ jokes and transforming them for the here and now. They do this through a creative process called the CJotD Three Rs©: ‘rework; revise; recycle’.
We recorded today’s ‘back to the floor’ visit with some photography, predominantly featuring our chief exec and two recycling team members each holding a giant red ‘R’. The photos will feature in our employee newsletter and, most likely, in national media.
It’s fitting that today’s Crap Joke of the Day™ is truly timeless. The recycling team can’t claim this as one of their own, but surely this is a two-liner that resonates across the ages.
Got home from work yesterday to find the wife wearing a slinky number.
It was ok, but only really worked when she went downstairs.
Another one of those, same time tomorrow.
