Elephant was interviewing some new employees before placing them on the schedule. He liked a lot of what they brought to the table and complimented each of them on their successes. One of the greatest joys of being the CEO of his company was the fact that he knew he could give these young workers a leg up when it came to their experience. Being able to create a platform that showed off their education and teachings would not only help his company, but it would also help their careers down the line. Elephant couldn’t think of a better way to use his authority than helping his workers.
