Answers to The Second WorkScramble of the Year

July 14, 2000
A little fun with simple directions. Here are the two directions:

1) Rearrange the letters in the phrases you will see.

2) Then, using the FIRST LETTERS of each phrase, create one final phrase.

 

Here's an example.

FORKCROWE

Unscramble the letters of the word above to arrive at the leading HR media organization.

 

ARE

Unscramble the letters of the word above to find a part of the body.

 

Alls you do is:

  1. Unscramble the first word. The answer is "Workforce."
  2. Unscramble the second word. The answer is "Ear."

  3. Take the first letter of the first word ("W") and the first letter of the second word ("E") and put them together to get the word "WE."

This contest is void where prohibited. Workforce employees, relatives, and the winner of the last WorkScramble are ineligible. Unfortunately, Workforce isn't responsible if something should go wrong and an e-mail does not go through. It happens, even here in hi-tech southern California.
