There was a Toy company, it’s owner was John Shud.
He took care of his workers in any way he could.
Happy workers return more than mere money ever won.
The business went through good and bad and then given to the son.
A problem in a department, the boss appears, the business always run.
Modern times and computers arrived but jobs never given away.
Shud junior worked very hard at management so people had jobs and stay.
Then Shud junior son’s arrived, he’s sweeping the floor.
He will learn how and why the company works like his father before

    Can’t beat starting at the bottom, even if you’re destined for the top job.

    These two ‘company’ drabbles are a bit like a nano-MBA lesson in management!

    You've made an interesting point Neville. I did "Skin and Flint" first then I thought I should take neutral stand by balancing business philosophy with Mr Shud and son. Thanks everyone for votes and comment.
