The Benefits of Bringing Your Dog to Work in NYC

By allison vannest

June 22 is “Take Your Dog to Work Day,” when many employees get to cancel the pet sitter for the afternoon and bring Fido into the office. However, at littleBits, we’re lucky to call every day “Take Your Dog to Work Day.”

Bringing our canine friends to work alleviates stress and increases employee performance, among other benefits. So, without further ado, meet the four-legged littleBits team!
