Where did the name jobCogs come from? The American Heritage Dictionary defines a cog as a subordinate member of an organization who performs necessary but usually minor or routine functions.
"My experience with some managers and employers is that they tend to treat their workers as cogs and not has people". "Our slogan is - we're more than jobCogs. I guess the name is a way to give the finger to those misguided managers and owners," Mr. Palmer said with a huge smile on his face.
