It can’t hurt talking up how you can further their career…or not.
The Office is a British sitcom that was originally broadcast by the BBC in the United Kingdom from 2001 to 2003.
The television programme was created and written by Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant; the former also played the main character, manager David Brent.
The series is set in the Slough office of a fictional paper merchant, Wernham Hogg, and is presented in a mockumentary format depicting the everyday lives of its employees.
Brent tries to be a friend and an entertainer as well as a boss, and is often annoying as a result.
His sycophantic assistant Gareth Keenan (Mackenzie Crook) annoys and is often pranked by sales representative Tim Canterbury (Martin Freeman), whose relationship with receptionist Dawn Tinsley (Lucy Davis) is a major story arc, despite her engagement to warehouse worker Lee (Joel Beckett).
Minor characters include droning and crass office worker Keith Bishop (Ewen Mac Intosh), Brent's brash and sexist friend Chris Finch (Ralph Ineson) and Brent's bosses Jennifer Taylor-Clarke (Stirling Gallacher) and later Neil Godwin (Patrick Baladi). Although series 1 and 2 were originally broadcast on BBC Two, the Christmas episodes were moved to BBC One to increase viewership following the previous series' popularity.
