This lovely dog, named Meeka, is not just a “very good girl” — she also has earned many awards to justify it.
Meeka is one of merely three workers at Accuride International Inc.’s southeastern sales center — which is actually the home-based office of her human/boss, Michael Reeg. The other staff member is the family’s other pooch, Kya.
However, Meeka is clearly the best one.
Ever since Reeg started doing business from home a year ago, as regional sales manager for the drawer slide producer, he’s realized that animals truly do result in excellent coworkers, even though they understand hardly anything regarding the business.
“Transitioning to a home-based position was quite a change,” Reeg shared. “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.”
Although Meeka usually doesn’t seem to be dealing with a lot of the workload, she assists in other essential ways.
“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.”
Kya, meanwhile, doesn’t appear to be very motivated.
“She is really my wife’s dog,” Reeg stated, “So she only comes up to the office when my wife is gone. We are her second choice for company!”
Meeka, on the other hand, is such a passionate employee that she’ll come up to the workplace even when Reeg is on a trip for work. Naturally, the dog’s supervisor has been pleased.
“I was not surprised at all when my dad first showed me the framed picture of Meeka as Employee of the Quarter because Meeka is very loyal to my dad and his (their) work,” Madison, Reeg’s daughter, shared. “I just thought it was hilarious.”
This was at the beginning of 2016 — but the distinctive accolade certainly didn’t lead Meeka to sit back and do nothing to achieve more.
She has gotten every single “Best Employee” honor since.
Meeka’s outstanding performance history hasn’t been ignored by Reeg’s fellow workers at the company office in California. They acknowledge that she’s worthy of that extensive series of rewards.
“He sends an update after every quarter. Meeka is an outstanding support to Michael and his work. Dogs are the best.”
