Heard about #BringYourDogToWorkDay?
Bring Your Dog To Work Day (which has been featured on ITV’s This Morning and in the Daily Mirror) is an annual nationwide event that raises money for pet charities. On Friday 26th June 2015, businesses across the UK will welcome their employees four-legged friends into the workplace, all in the name of charity.
Even if you already take your dog to work, you, your businesses or any dog-loving employee can become an official sponsor by making a donation online or by text and uploading your company logo (businesses) or pooch selfie (individuals) onto the 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.
Why should you bring your dog to work? As well as raising funds for a fantastic cause, and giving your dog a job, there are many scientific studies that confirm that the presence of pets can substantially reduce a person’s stress level in the workplace. Increased job satisfaction, team co-operation and morale have all been reported in employees that spend the workday with their pets.
So in addition to raising funds, Bring Your Dog To Work Day is likely to boost the productivity and happiness of the employees within your company. That said, your employees may need to take their lunch break outdoors... else we'll all regret it.
#BringYourDogToWorkDay is asking in a small donation, which goes directly to All Dogs Matter. It's £5 for dog owners and £50 for companies. Dog owners get to load their pet selfies on the site and companies can have their logo and info loaded. There's also a fantastic set of prizes to win, including a Long Paws Comfort Collection set for your dog.
