ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Work can be stressful. (That's why it's called work, right?) Try bringing your pets to work! Nestle Purina is encouraging companies to join the Pet at Work movement on June 21st by taking part in "National Bring Your Pet to Work Day." Hundreds of dogs and cats accompany their humans to Purina's St. Louis campus everyday. It makes for a happy workplace.
"Having pets walking through our offices everyday makes for a warmer, friendlier environment at Purina," says Gordon Wade. The Director of Purina brand marketing believes it helps with productivity. "We realize it won't work for every company and every pet owner, but we encourage other companies to try it on Friday, and see for themselves how it can provide real benefits."
If it works for Purina, might it work for your company? Check out www.petsatwork.com for ideas on how to get started at your office.
If you brought your pet to work, shoot video and share it on our Pet Video page.
