Tech firm hits on pawternity benefit for staff

Airsorted has hit upon an innovative way of ensuring staff can smooth the way for their own furry recruits.

The hosting management services, founded by James Jenkins-Yates, revealed it has introduced a new ‘Pawternity Leave’ for its employees in the UK to make sure ruff days are a thing of the past. Its UK employees are based in London, Brighton, Bristol and Edinburgh.

The new workplace perk ensures employees now get to spend up to a week working from home to heap puppy love and affection on their new pet.

Jenkins-Yates said: “It takes time for animals to make themselves comfortable in new surroundings. Our Pawternity Leave ensures that our employees have the flexibility and the support to look after their animals at this crucial stage.

“We’re particularly passionate about this initiative because we think that our employees, due to the great job they do, make ideal pet owners. They are patient, reliable and natural problem solvers.”
