Take Your Pet to Work Day’ gets compliments and criticism
A company in Shanghai that launched a "Take Your Pet to Work Day" in the
hopes of reducing employee stress has gained a lot of attention.
The company's staff members embraced the idea and brought their cats and dogs to the office.
A China News Service post on the feline and canine day received comments such as: "Petting their pets helps reduce stress and fatigue for busy office workers. Employees are very happy."
Some internet users thought it wasn't exactly appropriate to bring pets to the workplace. One asked "how they are going to deal with the hair and mess from their pets?"
Another said "people who are not comfortable around animals might not find it to be such an agreeable event."
