There are people like this in every corporation. They're usually the ones chosen by management to present the Safety Topic and Value Creations in All Hands Meetings.
There was a time when I believed it was just management making pure choices. I've come to believe, more recently, that it's an intentional part of their "Survival of the Fittest" routine. Those who can remain awake throughout the entirety of an All Hands Meeting (including the Safety Topic and Value Creations) will usually escape the next round of Workforce Reductions (It's politically incorrect to call them Lay-Offs).
