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 above to arrive at the leading HR/management media organization.

ARE

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

Alls you do is:

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

Remember, all you have to do is write the correct phrase next to each word. Then, write the final answer at the bottom, using the first letters of each word.

The winner, chosen randomly among the 31 who got everything right, was Matt Chaffee of Littler Mendelson. Matt won the compact disc Songs of the Working People featuring Pete Seeger and others.

This contest was void where prohibited. Workforce employees, relatives and anyone who thinks Jeopardy is easy were ineligible.Workforce was not liable if you or anyone in your organization was injuried while trying to get your entry in on time.
