In order to make the most efficient use of their space, many businesses these days have an open floor plan. At Hunt Adkins, we’ve devised an office arrangement that is more efficient by several orders of magnitude.
Every morning each employee is inserted into a comfy, seven-foot-diameter transparent sphere and sent rolling down a conveyer belt to be snatched between the steel talons of a giant mechanical arm and stacked neatly upon the HA employee pyramid.
Masters of discrete geometry will recognize this as something called face-centered cubic packing—a kind of stacking that grocers have been doing in the produce aisle for years. By thinking of our employees as oranges, we are now able to occupy our entire space from floor to ceiling with 74.048% efficiency.
You may wonder about such details as restroom breaks and claustrophobic panic attacks that set off chain reactions that lead to total pyramidal collapse and dozens of sphericals bouncing across the streets of Minneapolis. All we can say is that such are the challenges of growth; these are good problems to have.
