Pets do their own good work at work­places

Auckland City Harbour News - - NEWS -

An of­fice an­i­mal is good for busi­ness, ac­cord­ing to the or­gan­is­ers of Pets at Work Day.

Nestle Pu­rina Pet­Care New Zealand says pets and peo­ple are bet­ter to­gether and they’ve launched Pu­rina Pets at Work Day.

Hav­ing an­i­mals at work is be­lieved to lower stress lev­els, gen­er­ate higher lev­els of job sat­is­fac­tion and in­crease pro­duc­tiv­ity.

‘‘There’s noth­ing like hav­ing pets in the of­fice, whether it’s a ‘men­tal health’ break to play games with them or bring­ing them to a new busi­ness meet­ing to break the ice, there are a heap of benefits to hav­ing some wag­ging tails around,’’ Pu­rina head of mar­ket­ing Jen­nifer Chap­pell says.

‘‘We have pets in the of­fice ev­ery day and they’re so good for our spir­its and our health, see­ing as we’re al­ways get­ting out in the fresh air to walk them.

‘‘We want Ki­wis to give it a go for just one day of the year to see how much fun it can be,’’ she says.

Pets at Work Day is on June 5.

Lower the stress lev­els at work, gen­er­ate higher lev­els of job sat­is­fac­tion and in­crease pro­duc­tiv­ity by hav­ing a pet at work.
