Meet Meeka, the doggie who has won a quarterly ‘best employee award’ four times in a row. Meeka and another dog named Kya, along with their dad Michael Reeg, are three co-workers at the home office of Accuride International Inc.’s southeastern sales center. Reeg started working from home last year, and found having Meeka around incredibly useful. “Transitioning to a home-based position was quite a change,” Reeg tells The Dodo. “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.”

“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.”

To celebrate Meeka’s impeccable work ethic and dedication, Reeg started giving her ‘best employee’ awards, and now the office wall is full of them. As the time approaches for another quarterly award, Reeg wonders: “I haven’t decided yet if the prestige is going to her head,” says Reeg. “Maybe a change is needed for one quarter, so that Meeka doesn’t feel entitled. I want her to stay sharp.”
