Every day is “bring your dog to work” day at PatientPop – and we wouldn’t want it any other way. Having pups in the office really solidifies that we’re more than a company, we’re a family, and that includes employees’ furry friends. You aren’t surprised to see dogs playing with each other, relaxing in their very own company swag, and even at the table of important meetings.
“Bringing my best friends (aka my dogs Anderson and Louise) to the office is the best! No need to rush home right after work to take care of them, allowing the 3 of us to spend more time collaborating with coworkers.”
We’ve noticed a similar sentiment in many employees – having their dogs in the office means they have one less thing to worry about while they’re at work. Instead of paying for pricey dog walkers or leaving the pup alone at home, employees know that their dogs are in good hands and have plenty of company here at the office.
Welcoming dogs in the office seems to be of equal value to those with and without dogs. Taylor C., Recruiting and People Specialist, agrees: “I grew up with 3 dogs at home so it’s a little hard not being able to have pets in my apartment. It’s so great walking into work to see all sorts of dogs – little terriers to huge English Sheepdogs. Taking a couple minutes to play with the dogs is the perfect way to break up the work day.”
As Taylor said, our office dogs are as diverse as our employees. Monroe, our biggest pup, is an English Sheepdog that weighs more than 100 pounds and stands 3 feet tall. It may seem hard to imagine such a big dog navigating the workspace of 170 employees, but Monroe is certainly a “gentle giant.”
All in all, we know that having dogs at the office is a perk that PatientPop could never go without 🙂
