Being able to work remotely from home comes with its perks, the main one being that you don't have to leave for work every morning, but this in itself is also one of its biggest pitfalls because unless you have to leave the house to run errands you end up missing out on interaction with coworkers or just people in general... something that District Sales Manager Michael Reeg knows all too well... so he had to get a little creative.
Working remotely with only his two dogs Meeka and Kya for company he soon found that despite the fact that they don't have a clue what they're doing they actually make ideal coworkers, so much so that he started awarding Meeka "best employee" awards as recognition for her hard work and achievements as well as inspiring Reeg to work harder. "You need to get yourself fired up and excited about the day. Having a faithful companion in the office certainly helps,” he told The Dodo.
So what does Meeka actually do to help around the office? aside from looking cute and laying around she's also a friend to talk to and Reeg often finds himself talking through problems with her until he figures out a solution as well as practicing sales pitches to Meeka before pitching them to clients, meaning she's been more than deserving of the prestigious title for the past four quarters. As for Kya, she's more Reeg's wife's dog so she only comes up to the office when she goes out, although rest assured that Meeka's title is still up for grabs in the next quarter.
When Michael Reeg started working remotely he found he missed the interaction with other coworkers...
But luckily he has two dogs, Meeka and Kya, for company instead.
He soon found that they actually make great employees, particularly Meeka.
Meeka is always there for Reeg to chat to, whether he's practicing a client pitch or trying to solve a problem...
Which is why he decided to start awarding her 'best employee!"
A title that she's been awarded for the last four quarters and is set to win in the fifth!
