One of the things our agency is known for, among the people who have visited our office, is the fact we have M&Ms everywhere. Bowls of M&Ms greet you as you walk in, while more bowls are distributed around the conference rooms and public areas of the office. Clients love it; students who come to visit love it even more. I think the UPS guy partakes as well.
The story behind them -- and guys, correct me if I'm wrong -- comes from the early days of the agency, back in a time when advertising walked uphill both ways in the snow. One of the founders, upon reading that sugar makes the brain function better, started distributing candy around the office. Eventually M&Ms proved themselves quite popular, and ever since then we've had endless supplies of the candy that melts in our mouth (but not in your hand) around.
The question of whether the sugar helps our brains work better is answered every day in the halls of SHS. And that's why I'm wondering if, in the quest to make the agency employees more and more creative every day, and in light of the recent finding that subject studies solved problems better while lying down, the managing partners will let us expense a day bed or a hammock.
