Hello Elves! I received the elf count update for our this morning from Elf Flip in Flight Command. We have the follow number of elves on record:
Freelance Elves – 2,444,185
North Pole Elves – 635,251
Total Elves – 3,079,436
I do not have to remind you that we have the largest land mass to cover and the smallest group of elves. Recruiting for our sector will be intense this year. We have many obstacles to overcome, not the least of which is an issue with languages. We are working with Flight Command to build “micro-communities”, where elves can come learn and interact in their own language. That is going to take some time to develop.
Our regional HQ is in Turkey this year. We are nearly operational all. But it too is a long way away from where many of our elves live, specifically in China. I’m not sure how that affects us, but I’m worried about it.
We await Santa’s big announcement on the 12th. That will give us more of an idea of the challenges ahead of us.
Thank you for your loyalty and hard work!
