Our PAW Podcast

Working with People Management we have created an exciting podcast on the topic of Pets at Work targeted at the HR community. 

As employers consider what the new world of work looks like post lockdown, the podcast aims to convey what a positive & progressive initiative PAW is and the huge benefits it can have on employee wellbeing and productivity. With a surge in Puppy ownership and many dog owners becoming especially close to their pets during lockdown PAW is very relevant now, as not only can it provide a feel good factor to people returning to offices, it can also help ease separation anxiety.

On the podcast panel our very own Gemma Gillingham is joined by Holly Patrick, lecturer in HR management at Edinburgh Napier University; Jo Hemmings, behavioural and media psychologist to discuss the benefits of working with our dogs & why HR teams should be considering it right now.
