The workplace sure is changing. Scottish beer company BrewDog is offering paid "pawternity leave" to its employees who have a new puppy or rescue dog.
BrewDog, which will be opening a brewery soon in Columbus, Ohio, announced it's giving all of its more than 1,000 workers a week off to bond with their furry friends:
"Here at BrewDog, we care about many things but have two main focuses above all others – our beer and our people. And over the years we have noticed that our people also care about many things but have two main focuses above all others – our beer and their dogs. We totally get that. That’s why we let them bring their four-legged friends to work at BrewDog, and why we are now going one better with the latest awesome – or should that be pawesome – staff perk. We are introducing Puppy Parental Leave across our company."
The brewery believes its the only company in the U.S. to offer paid time off for the purpose of taking care of dogs. BrewDog, who has its headquarters in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, says it has 50 "office dogs."
