FURRY FRIENDS: Pet-friendly office opens in Radlett

 Published on: 19th April 2023   |   By: Megan Milstead   |   Category: Uncategorized

Pet-friendly offices are on the rise, with 50 per cent of Brits in favour of having dogs in the workplace.

Hawksmoor Construction in Radlett currently has three furry friends in the office – Dolly, Cash and Snickers. When they’re not busy supervising the team, they’re relaxing in their favourite break spot, enjoying treats and walks, and are happy to greet clients and visitors.

Marketing and projects coordinator Ola Ingielewicz said: “We are all big animal lovers. It started with Cash coming in with his pawrent, our quantity surveyor, James. After a while, James also rescued Dolly, so we thought it was only fair to allow her in the office too.

“Later on, Ola joined Hawksmoor and she has dreamt of having a dog in London for a very long time but didn’t want to leave them at home on their own all day, therefore being already pet friendly, we decided to make it official.

“They’re more than just pets – they’re an integral part of the Hawksmoor family. Having them in the office has several benefits for employees and the overall work environment. They help reduce stress levels in the office by providing a calming presence and a source of comfort for employees.

“They also encourage socialisation among employees, as they provide a common topic of conversation and help break down barriers between them. Dolly, Cash and Snickers create a very positive and friendly atmosphere and always make everyone smile.”
