“What happens to a company if somebody takes a boss away? I will answer your question with a question. It’s like, what happens to a chicken when you take its head away? It dies.” – Michael Scott
Today, on the most sacred of United States secular corporate holidays, our team would like to take a moment to recognize the head of our chicken, Andrew Miller.
It’s an unenviable task trying to keep a team of four Millennials happy, focused, and motivated, but Andrew does just that every day. He encourages us to take ownership of our work, and to explore new and better ways to get things done. Despite being a small company, Andrew has created a culture where the opportunities are as endless as we want them to be.
One day, as we’re sipping bourbon in our corner offices, interns eagerly gathered around to soak up our vast knowledge, we’ll speak fondly of our time under Andrew’s tutelage. We can already imagine how several of our stories will start:
“I had this one boss who used to let his 4-year-old shoot us with Nerf guns while we were trying to work.”
“This one time, my boss brought a Crock-Pot full of chicken and onions into our relatively small office, and cooked his family’s dinner during the workday. The office smelled like onions for days.”
But most importantly…
“You know Andrew Miller, the CEO of Google? Yeah, I used to work for that guy… Great darts player.”
So, Happy National Boss’ Day, Andrew, and thanks for all you do!
