Take Your Dog to Work Day was a hard sell for some of the employees at Media1, a human resource consultancy for large corporations in Grand Haven, Michigan. “At our company, we’ve got dog lovers, dog-nostics, and doggie detractors,” explained CEO Chris Willis of her 25-person company. “You have to respect the wishes of all your employees.” The company participated in the day for the first time last year, keeping the event simple and allowing some employees who did not participate have the day off. Their day raised money for a local pet adoption service, Michelle’s Rescue.
