Not so long ago bringing your dogs to work would have been a very strange thing to suggest let alone do. We have had a few "bring your dog to work days" at Collingwood and have really seen a benefit to the dogs, their owners and most of the team too.
Having our office located on a golf course helps, as dog walking is made simple, but the real benefits are around the distraction they provide from the daily stresses and worries in the world of Executive Search and Leadership Consultancy.
I am definately an advocat of more doggy days and you should be too!
A dog isn’t just for Christmas, it is for life…and in some cases the workplace too! Introducing a furry friend to your office, not only add a bit of cuteness to your day, but believe it or not, it could also boost the productivity of your workforce! Many of us could only dream of having a pet in the office to keep us company and lighten the mood when times get tough, but it’s not always feasible for a lot of workplaces. Obviously things like allergies and terms of rent have to be considered; however, if there’s no real reason holding you back, why not give it some thought? There are a number of benefits of having an office pet and it could be just what you need to boost team morale!
