A random thought for a Friday afternoon: Many companies like to say people are their greatest asset. But do they really mean it? I doubt it. After all, people come and go. But true assets — like, say, a solid file cabinet — stick around forever.
After conducting a thorough analysis, Anna and I ranked The Hired Pens’ assets in the following order according to value:
- Our slick sound system (with built-in cassette player)
- Our new Ikea bookshelf (the “Lerberg” — how delightfully Swedish!)
- Our snack drawer (which prevents Anna from getting too grumpy in the afternoon)
- Our people
- Our rotating stand-up fan (with remote control)
We just thought you should know.
