Hi Dog Pals,
I have got something REALLY special to tell you about!
June 23rd is
#BringYourDogToWorkDay !!! That means that all you lovely four-legged pals of mine can do what I do and go to work with your Humans!
I is very lucky as my Human Mum (Hum) works from home so every day is a Bring Your Dog to Work Day for us! And I has to be at Hum’s work ‘cos I has to help her with all the hotel reviews; pub reviews and now product reviews not to mention keeping up with my Social Media.
But now this special day lets you take part and it is really special as it is all for charities that help dogs and other animals not so well off as some of us.
So what is Bring Your Dog To Work Day?
Bring Your Dog To Work Day (as seen on ITV’s This Morning, the Daily Mirror and Waitrose Weekend as well as many other UK national publications) is an annual nationwide event that raises money for charities dedicated to making a difference to the welfare of dogs. On Friday 23rd June 2017, 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. It’s the fourth national event of its kind and is organised by HOWND®.
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), on our 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 and Animals Asia, a charity dedicated to improving the lives of dogs, cats and bears in China and Vietnam.
As well as raising funds for a great cause, Bring Your Dog to Work Day could have some positive benefits for employee productivity and wellbeing. Above all, the day promises to be a lot of fun for all those involved. It’s time to give your dog a job!
Many scientific studies have concluded 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. Since 2014, the year we established Bring Your Dog To Work Day, we have witnessed a growing number of businesses across the UK that allow dogs in the workplace.
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. And it means hundreds if not thousands of pets around the UK can now go to work alongside their humans!
#BringYourDogToWorkDay trended on twitter in 2015 and 2016.
Let’s make it happen again!
