The Glenn Group, a Nevada-based marketing and innovation agency, has been recognized as one of The Bark’s “Best Places to Work 2013-2014”. The agency is listed among 130 of the most dog-friendly workplaces in America, including companies Great Dane-sized and Chihuahua-sized alike across 30 states.
The Glenn Group, listed among the likes of national companies including Google, Amazon, and Ben & Jerry’s, has been promoting a dog-friendly work environment in their offices for almost 20 years. As part of their “bring your dog to work” policy, employees are invited to bring their furry friends to work in order to contribute to a happier, stress-free workplace.
“To be listed among some great companies that incorporate dogs into their everyday work lives is an honor,” said Valerie Glenn, CEO and principal of The Glenn Group. “Our dogs are our family. They are great morale builders and all around fun to have in the office.”
Allowing pets at work increases worker productivity, staff morale and camaraderie. Dogs’ presence also helps reduce stress and increase job satisfaction, even for those without pets.
Brittany Rubenau, media buyer, chooses to take to her dog to work every day for many reasons. “Having Cash here with me helps keep my spirits up and keeps me relaxed, which I think goes for others in the office too,” Rubenau said.
Each year The Bark, a magazine of modern dog culture, seeks out the most dog-friendly places in America, those who understand the value of working in the company of dogs. The list can be seen in its entirety here: http://thebark.com/content/barks-best-places-work-2013-14.
