(i)  they were the co-worker/officers of the head quarter where hooper works
(ii) they decided to do that because hooper is not able to walk. his co worker thought that a desk job will suit hooper because he was not able to walk anymore. His co-worker loved him and did not want to him to lose his job completely so, his co-worker thought about a desk job as an alternative for hooper.
