-Work-life balance (91 per cent)

-Greater loyalty to the company (91 per cent)

Brian Ayling, general manager at Mars Multisales Africa said, “It’s true – bringing your dog to work is good for you. Dogs in the office can offer a sense of comfort, relieve stress, increase physical activity and even improve productivity. Having pets in the office is one of many ways we aim to make the world a better place for pets.”

Mars sites around the world are celebrating the benefits of bringing furry friends to work with a range of activities happening between 19 – 23 June.
