Every design studio, every branding house, every advertising agency has one. You know, that one employee who has to be the center of attention, who comes in late and leaves early, that Queen B who lords over all, that creative mind that says one brilliant word in a meeting and leaves the rest of us scrambling to figure out the details.
Red Chalk is no exception. We have (cue the drumroll that sounds remarkably like claws scratching a chair)… Ramona.
The reason I’m writing this is because new clients ask about her. Current clients want updates. No matter how many smart social media strategies we deploy, how many brilliant marketing solutions we design, or how many engaging websites we launch, it’s all about Ramona.
Ramona, Ramona, Ramona.
Not that we’re bitter or anything.
We love Ramona. Is it the way she steals every last pencil off your desk? Is it the way she demonstrates her paper-weight expertise on the one document you’re looking for? Or perhaps it’s the oh-so precious way she ushers a blue-skink guest into your meeting?
Good times. We’ll take it. Because she also jumps into a lap for a snuggle or gives your leg a “drive-by” hug. In fact, those who study these things tell us Ramona is also:
- Reducing our stress levels
- Forcing us to take breaks
- Boosting our morale
- A recruiting tool
- Encouraging teamwork
Consider the crazy popularity of cat cafes (like this one in Tokyo) or other businesses such as the Ferray Corporation that brings “the soothing cat cafe experience to the office by filling their workplace with adorable cats.”
It’s high time we recognize the one employee that makes us, well, better. We can honestly say there’s a little bit of hair, uh, her in everything we do.
