How does spending an entire week playing with a puppy and getting paid for it sound to you? Too good to be true?
We’re here to inform you that there is a company which allows their employees to do that. Yes, that exists.
Companies all over the world have stepped up their game to ensure a high quality of life for their employees by offering all sorts of competitive perks and benefits. But we have found the one company that has every other place beat, hands down, no question.
BrewDog, a brewery based in Scotland, announced on Monday that it would be instituting "Puppy Parental Leave" across their company.
"We know only too well that having a new arrival – whether a mewling pup or unsettled rescue dog – can be stressful for human and hound both," BrewDog stated on its website. "So we are becoming the first in our industry to give our staff a working week’s leave on us to help settle a new furry family member into their home."
If it were possible to give an entire company a hug, we would be doing it to BrewDog right now.
Their announcement also came with this adorable video explaining the policy.
As you may have guessed by the brewery’s name, dogs are an essential part of the identity of BrewDog. Indeed, the brewery was founded by two men and a dog.
"Ever since Bracken, the original Brew Dog, first watched James and Martin mash in batch number one of Punk IPA back in 2007 dogs have been central to our way of life," the brewery mentions on its site.
BrewDog also encourages its employees to bring their dogs to work. Their main office in Scotland boasts 50 "office dogs."
How does anyone get any work done there?
While the brewery is headquartered in Scotland, they are planning on opening up another brewery in Columbus, Ohio. And just a reminder, the puppy paid leave policy extends to all employees anywhere.
