Her responsibilities are to encourage participation among the staff by picking up the toys they throw and then letting them run after her to try to get them back. “During the week, I try to help each employee feel I appreciate and love them. I rotate the order of whose desk I snooze under. I also rotate who I get to take me out for a walk each day. I know who has great lunches and likes to give me treats, thereby making sure they don’t overeat”.
