Percepti Fidelis is Latin for "Busy Creating The Perception." Well known in the United States of America as the motto of underpaid tech workers who telecommute or work flexible schedules (flex schedules), this phrase, often shortened to Percepti Fi in telecommute contexts, has served as a slogan for many workers and entities, in many countries, dating at least as far back as the 20th century.
Upper management had a perception that Ted's telecommuting was unproductive and that he was never at his desk, so he got busy creating a "new perception" -- Percepti Fidelis!

Did you know tasks can be completed even if C-levels can't physically see you sitting at your desk? -- Percepti Fidelis!

FAN #1: "Dude, sort of like the best of both worlds."
