JAKE has been coming to placeworks since 2000. While he may have been happier if his pal Gregg had opted for a career in Rocket Science, he has settled quite nicely into Architectural Design. Having supervised up to as many as three other canines and the occasional intern pup, he currently supervises only one other. In addition to supervisory tasks, he is primarily responsible for ensuring every visitor is greeted and given the opportunity to relax over a game of fetch.
His leadership style is very hands-on, making sure none of the human employees nod off at their desks, and by always having a toy to present at the feet of a human, he has expertly guided (herded) his department into being the most efficient in the office. In fact, the canine department has become so efficient, they can nap 50% of the day away!
KAOS has been an active member of the Placeworks team since 2007. Although he would love to come to the office full time, his pal Steph needs to be elsewhere for two days and she’s his ride, so he settled for three days instead.
Specializing in Corporate Security and Janitorial, his duties include back alley surveillance, guarding against the prying eyes of nosy squirrels, magpies and pigeons, as well as daily garbage inspection. He very much enjoys break time when he and Jake get to wrestle and play tug of war. He also loves assisting Jake with greeting clients and getting a good scratch behind the ears.
