BrewDog offers employees paid leave for new puppies

Some companies just know how to treat their employees. The owners of BrewDog are dog lovers who want to encourage their employees to rescue dogs with paid leave:

A newborn puppy can be a full-time job, that’s why beer maker BrewDog — a Scottish brewery set to open up an Ohio location later this year — now offers a week of paid leave for employees with new puppies or rescued dogs. The company said it’s the first company in the United States, and the first brewery in the United Kingdom, to offer the “paw-ternity” benefit. BrewDog, in an announcement made earlier this week, said the benefit will be offered to all of its nearly 1,000 employees across the world, including those at its soon-to-be brewery near Columbus, Ohio, which is set to open in the spring.

We’re not sure if anyone has abused this incentive yet, but we certainly hope more companies adopt this practice.
