“There are times that I’ll even talk to her as I work through a problem or map out a customer solution. I try out my sales pitches and presentations on her. She’s not easily impressed or swayed. All she hears is ‘blah, blah, blah, Meeka’ — but she likes to hear my voice and I love that she pays attention. Having her in my office all day is something that we both look forward to.”
When it comes to work, it’s always easier if you get along with your coworkers.
When Michael Reeg, a district sales manager for a drawer slide manufacturer, first started working from home instead of from the office, it took some getting used to. As anyone who works remotely can tell you, it’s sometimes hard to get used to the flow of managing your own work day. Thankfully, Michael had one very friendly coworker to keep him company.
Meet Meeka, one of just three employees in Michael’s company.
“Transitioning to a home-based position was quite a change,” Michael said, describing his Woodstock, Georgia home office. “It’s quiet here. You need to get yourself fired up and excited about the day. Having a faithful companion in the office certainly helps.”
Every day, Meeka joins Michael in his office as he conducts the day’s business. Her specialties are taking naps, giving snuggles, and dropping her favorite tennis ball into Michael’s lap at regular intervals. She’s so dedicated that she’ll even show up for work when Michael is out of town.
