On June 24, Slaughter and May opened its doors to its workforce’s furry friends, as part of its pilot trial of ‘bring your dog to work day’, spearheaded by managing partner Deborah Finkler. Swipe to see the dogs enjoying the office.
In a statement at the time of the announcement of the pilot, Finkler said: “I have long been an advocate of having our dogs in the office and so am delighted that we are trialling Slaughter and May’s first ever Bring your Dog to Work Day. The benefits of all animals and especially dogs to mental health, morale and alleviating stress are widely recognised, and I also hope that the trial makes for a fun and sociable day.”
A partner at the firm said they believed the scheme would help “humanise” the firm and dispel its image of being uber conservative.
