Dogs - a worker's best friend
11:00am Saturday 17th August 2013 in News
RATHER than man’s best friend, pooches at a Centre Park business in the town were proving to be employees’ best friend during a ‘bring your dog to work’ day.
Employment services provider Parasol has claimed the company enjoyed its best day of results in four years when bosses invited staff to bring their four-legged friends to the office.
Derek Kelly, managing director at Parasol, said: “We thought it would improve morale but we didn’t expect it to boost productivity too.
“To be honest I was a bit concerned that having dogs running around the office would serve as a distraction but it seems the opposite is true.”
With a canine presence in the office, Parasol’s new starter team secured its highest number of contractor employee registrations in a single day since 2010 and call response times also improved compared to previous Fridays.
