Going to the Dogs
By Jodi Chromey
The StarTribune features a fun story about offices going to the dogs today. The article highlights businesses in the Twin Cities who have an open door policy to dogs and includes The Nerdery, KTI the Transportation People, Bswing, and Risdall Public Relations. The article also mentions what a dog-friendly work environment means to employees and dogs:
The potential benefits for dogs and humans probably are tied to the office's nature, said John Budd, the Department of Work and Organizations chair at the University of Minnesota's Carlson School of Management.
"There are probably particular environments with a particular set of individuals where having dogs in the workplace is beneficial," Budd said. "... I say this partly tongue-in-cheek. Many people are stuck working in lousy conditions. Who wants to subject their dog to their own misery?"
Make sure you head on over to the StarTribune to see a bunch of cute dog pictures.
