Cross celebrating the positives of having an office dog
| 04 January, 2018
With Chinese New Year celebrating the Year of the Dog in February, Cross Pens are taking the lead on a new initiative to crown the UK’s best workplace pooch.
The Cross Office Dog of the Year 2018 is now open for submissions – celebrating workplaces with a wagging tail and a woof.
The competition comes in the wake of an increase of bosses allowing pets at desks and in offices – with around 8% of UK businesses having a friendly canine in the office or work location, to stand guard or, more often, have a quick nap.
Research concluded that man’s best friend has a significant effect on productivity and mindfulness with 88% of UK employees saying a dog improves their morale.
Cross is providing the ultimate prize pack to the best business beagle or the pinnacle of Pomeranian placements – including a Special Edition Cross Townsend Year of the Dog Pen, a one-of-a-kind dog tag and prizes from competition partners, Higher Nature and PetSafe® Brand.
The Cross Townsend Year of the Dog Pen is available as a ball-pen, rolling ball or fountain pen and features rich black lacquer with 23ct gold engraving in the shape of a dog plus a stunning red Swarowski crystal inset into the top of the cap. Prices start from £208.
Entries for the Cross Office Dog of the Year are now open, with one winner and two runners up decided by an illustrious panel of judges.
