Here at BISSELL, we’re pet people—so naturally, Take Your Dog to Work Day is one of our favorite days of the year. But we don’t save all the fun for just one day in June. Our office in the UK and in the USA is dog friendly 365 days of the year.
If you roam the halls at our headquarters you will often find a dog or two in an office meeting, sitting at their owners’ desk, or taking a walk outside. Our office in the USA also has a dog friendly “PetSpot” complete with an open area for dogs to play together, kennels with outdoor access so that dogs can come in and out as they wish, treats, a dog bath, and fun toys to keep pets occupied so their owners can have meetings and get their work done.
Not only does our dog friendly culture boost morale, but studies have shown that having dogs in the office helps with collaboration and trust between employees. What more can it do for a workplace?
It’s easy to get in the work zone and forget to take a break. With a pal by their side that will surely need a few breaks throughout the day, it prompts our employees to get up on their feet and away from that computer screen.
It’s tough to get to know everyone in any office. When employees bring their dogs to work, it’s hard to resist striking up a conversation. Bonding over doggy tales is a great way to get to know co-workers!
One of the worst parts of being a pet owner is seeing the sad face in the window as you leave your house for the day. Believe us, our pups are thrilled to tag along—and meet new furry friends at the BISSELL office.
Our employees can tell you what it is really like. Here are testimonials from our employees about bringing their dogs to work:
