    Can you tell us what you are meaning to say? It is not clear.

    Re: put in

    I meant "I am having/making/putting everybody to do some works". On the other way everybody is busy with doing something.

    Jim is a little one so if tried to say everybody is working even Jim.

    "put to work" is the idiom.
    "I put everybody to work including Jim"?
