A Company Is Offering New Dog Owners a Week Off to Care For Their Pets
Caring for a puppy can be a handful, particularly if you've got to manage settling in your new pet with a full-time job. So, dog-owners will be pleased to hear a company in Scotland has just launched the United Kingdom's first 'paw-ternity' leave program, and it's quite the perk.
Brewdog, Scotland's largest craft brewer, is now giving employees a week's paid holiday to look after a new dog. It allows staff to make sure their four-legged friend gets comfortable in its new home without being left alone for long periods of time. Once the week is over, the company encourages staff to bring their dogs with them to work.
Brewdog co-founder, James Watt, hopes the initiative reflects the company's commitment to a great benefit scheme, as well as a love of dogs.
"It's not easy trying to juggle work and settle a new dog into your life, and many members of our crew have four-legged friends at home," Watt said in a statement. "So we wanted to take the stress out of the situation and let our teams take the time they need to welcome their new puppy or dog into their family. We always want to raise the bar when it comes to offering our staff the best possible benefits; at BrewDog, we care about two things above all else. People and beer. We also just really really like dogs."
The company's Aberdeen HQ currently has around 50 office dogs, but this new bonus will be available to all BrewDog employees around the world, including the brewery's new base in Columbus, Ohio. And it's not the only advantage of working at a brewery. As well as offering enhanced maternity and paternity pay, Brewdog ensures every employee is trained to know as much as they can about beer. Staff also get to enjoy the "liberal" free beer policy.
