In an increasing amount of workplaces, every day is take your dog to work day. Rover, an in-home dog-walking and pet care company, released a list of the 100 Best Dog-Friendly Offices in June, and among them was Sittercity, an online marketplace for local in-home care. Kelli Koschmann, VP of People at Sittercity, explains that their dog friendly policy aims for inclusivity by supporting dog lovers as well as people who have allergies. Josh Testo, Director of Customer Success, reveals the ups and downs of taking your dogs to work and why a dog-friendly policy pushed him to accept a job at Sittercity.
