Today, June 24th, is ‘Bring Your Dog To Work Day’ - an annual nationwide event organised by HOWND® that raises money for charities dedicated to making a difference to the welfare of dogs. Today businesses from across the UK will welcome their dog loving employees into the workplace, along with their loyal four-legged companions, all in the name of charity.
As well as raising funds for a cause, Bring Your Dog to Work Day could deliver positive benefits for your company productivity and wellbeing. Many research studies have shown that the presence of pets can substantially reduce stress levels in the workplace. Increased job satisfaction, team co-operation and morale have all been reported in employees that spend their workday with their pets. So in addition to raising funds, Bring Your Dog To Work Day may boost the productivity and happiness of you and your company.
Even if you already take your dog to work, you, your businesses or any dog-loving employee can become an official sponsor of the event by making a donation online or by text and uploading your company logo (businesses) or pooch selfie (individuals), on their website. All proceeds this year go to dog rescue charity All Dogs Matter, a charity that rehomes hundreds of dogs every year in London and Norfolk.
We have a fair few dogs between our team of virtual assistants and as all of them work flexibly from home, many are lucky enough to bring their dogs to work everyday and reap the benefits. Check out our social media pages for pictures of the ‘team’ during the day.
