True Tales From the Office: The Ratings Game
Our story begins in the conference room, where the employee and the supervisor are discussing a recent external audit.
SUPERVISOR: As you can see, the ratings for your section are down from last year.
EMPLOYEE: Didn't you say these audits were all subjective?
SUPERVISOR: I don't recall saying that.
Fast-forward to the conference room one year (and another external audit) later.
EMPLOYEE: You'll notice that my section's ratings are up this year.
SUPERVISOR: Yeah, but you know the thing about these audits ...
EMPLOYEE: They're all subjective?
SUPERVISOR: I'm glad you're finally paying attention.
And ... scene!
