Dame Fiona Kendrick: Why you should bring dogs to work

Dame Fiona Kendrick, Chairwoman and CEO at Nestlé UK & Ireland, has re-emphasised the importance of dogs in the workplace.

    What about people who have severe allergies to animal fur. Bringing in animals into the office would send me to A&E! A great idea for a section of employees but could cause more difficulties for others.

    I worked at a Health Management Ltd and they had a dog policy at their Head Office. It went down very well with staff .

    I am very much not a dog person - very much indeed. I would find dogs in the workplace very stressful.
    Can I bring my cat instead ? - it would have the same affect on me personally. Or maybe my llama ?
