ABSTRACT
The article discusses the unusual training course that Rightmove.co.uk is using and has been linked to the television program "Big Brother." Like the television show, all new recruits who have completed their three-month probation period share a house, bedrooms, cooking duties for a week and are given tasks to test their teamwork and problem-solving abilities. This is part of the company's attempt to retain its culture after expanding from 30 to 270 staff.
