In this special People Management Insight podcast episode, a panel of experts explores what post-lockdown working looks like, and the focus on employers to create safe, welcoming and supportive workplaces. One in five Brits could already bring their dog to work before the pandemic – and given the recent increase in pet ownership, many new owners will be looking to their employers to see if they can provide a dog-friendly office environment in future.
Listen on as host Elizabeth Howlett, staff writer at People Management, speaks with Dr Holly Patrick, lecturer in HR management at Edinburgh Napier University; Jo Hemmings, behavioural and media psychologist; and Gemma Gillingham, consumer service manager at Purina, about how progressive, feel-good HR initiatives, such as creating dog-friendly spaces could help ease the way back to workplace for Britain’s animal lovers.
In this podcast episode, in partnership with Purina, the panel discuss:
- What are the benefits of working with our dogs around?
- Why should HR teams be considering dog-friendly working policies right now?
- How could implementing a dog-friendly policy benefit your organisation and workforce?
- What do employers need to think about when considering bringing dogs into the workplace?
Stay tuned – the episode will appear on this page soon.
