Salo employees’ stay-at home guilty pleasures include:

  • Teaching my cat to fetch during my lunch break
  • Blaring Metallica live in concert while doing my busy work
  • Working without shoes OR socks
  • Eating the food in my kitchen rather than packing it in my work Tupperware
  • Putting on a TV series (that I have already seen) in the background for white noise while I work
  • Taking a workout break at 3:00 in the afternoon (as long as my dog lets me)
  • Having an open window with fresh air blowing on me all day
  • Starting my day by stretching in my stretchy pants while going through email
  • Taking calls outside to enjoy the sun
  • Enjoying the different wildlife in my backyard pond from my kitchen counter
