It’s Dogs at Work Day at Whitehall! Surprisingly, it’s quieter than usual as our snuggly guests were truly on their best behaviour and our recruiters enjoyed looking after the dogs and petting them so much, they avoided disrupting their naps.

It has been scientifically proven that petting a dog has a positive impact on mental wellbeing and reduces stress – which is an especially good thing for a high-pressure environment. Having dogs at work also encourages owners to exercise – even non-owners offered to walk the dogs. As a result, our employees are happier and more productive. – Ellie, HR Manager

As part of the event, we also organised a fund raise for the National Animal Welfare Trust, a charity in Clacton dedicated to re-home hundreds of pets. If you would like to support the cause, you can donate here.
