TEWKSBURY, Mass., April 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Is Fido a part of the team at your office? Have happy hours turned into "yappy" hours with the addition of four-legged colleagues? If the answer is yes, Wellness® Natural Pet Food wants to hear from you!
In anticipation of Take Your Dog to Work Day® on June 21, 2019, Wellness Natural Pet Food is curating its third annual list of America's Most Pet Friendly Companies. For the first time, the natural pet food maker is inviting companies from across the country to tout why they deserve a spot on the coveted list. Any company with a pet-friendly workplace is eligible — and bonus points are given for workplaces that go above and beyond with added pet perks like "Paternity Leave" for new pet parents, pet health insurance benefits, and more.
To submit, companies can simply share a photo of dogs in their office on Instagram and explain in the caption what makes their pet-friendly culture unique. Companies must tag @wellnesspetfood in their post and include #TakeYourDogtoWorkDay, #PetFriendyCompanies2019 and #wellnesspetfood in each submission. The call for entries will be open April 3 through April 30, 2019, and companies are encouraged to submit multiple entries during the submission period.
"Since launching our first list of pet friendly companies in 2017, we've heard from more and more workplaces that they'd like a shot at the top spot on our list," said Chanda Leary-Coutu, Director of Consumer Experience at Wellness. "We're opening up the submission process to make sure every company has a chance to be celebrated for putting their best paw-forward when it comes to embracing pets at work!"
Companies that have been named to the list in prior years have included Tito's Handmade Vodka, Etsy, Harpoon Brewery, BISSELL Homecare and more.
A recent survey from Wellness found out exactly how important dog-friendly corporate cultures are to today's workforce, with 51 percent of millennials stating that they would consider a career move for a pet-friendly workplace. Whether it's conference calls with Fido at your feet or flexible paid time off benefits to take care of a pup, it's clear that Americans are prioritizing their pet perks.
America's Most Pet Friendly Companies of 2019 will be announced in June ahead of Take Your Dog to Work Day, which was created by Pet Sitters International and is now celebrated by offices across the country.
