_Friday, June 22 will be celebrated by pet lovers nationwide as the 12th annual "Take Your Dog to Work" Day and a growing number of companies are allowing pets to visit the workplace for this special occasion. That's a good thing for workers, according to a recent article in the International Journal of Workplace Health Management. Researchers at Virginia Commonwealth University found that having dogs in the workplace can reduce employee stress, increase job satisfaction and work commitment.
Makes sense to me. How many of you take your dogs to work with you, if not all the time, then at least every now and then? Incidentally, the dog in the picture isn't one of my hounds, she (her name's Sprig and she's an English cocker) belongs to Pheasants Forever Online Editor Anthony Hauck, who works in perhaps the most dog-friendly corporate office in America.
