Female Run Company’s Disciplinary Policy
Bloomberg reported that a female CEO could replace the elderly male that had run the corporation. The stock price sagged. The company was known for its macho, boy’s club corporate culture. How could a woman manage male intransigence?
The CEO bypassed the men. She saw them as sharks who worked for their own private benefit and not the company’s. She promoted women to the special executive council that she had created.
Within six months, new efficiencies and modernization had increased profitability and the stock price surged. That was especially sour news for some of the old guard. They had sold their company stock.
Many of the old executives left the company. They were willing to accept a substantial cut in income rather than work for women.
With their departure, the company hierarchy became exclusively female. Men were hired only for clerical work. No man held a higher position than executive secretary.
The CEO announced new disciplinary policies. They applied strictly to men.
Men who arrived late to work or returned from lunch were to be spanked. Men who spoke out of turn or disrespectfully would have their mouths soaped. Clerical errors would be punished by corner time.
Male productivity showed a marked increase. Tardiness almost vanished.
Female morale was at an all-time high.
Increased profitability and another rise of stock value followed.
It was a tough transition for the men. But once the disciplinary policies had been in place for a few months the men realized that they were actually happier. There relationships with the bosses were clear of ambiguity. They always knew where they stood. Hidden resentments vanished.
The gossipy male clerical workers began bragging. Each claiming that his boss was the strictest disciplinarian and gave the most painful spankings.
