Dogs in the Office Day

On Friday 7 April, around eight furry friends of Get Started team members padded their way into our Melbourne HQ for a day in the office.

Somewhere between the #cutepics channel on Slack and the office watercooler last year, the idea of having a Dogs in the Office Day found its paws. There was an initial attempt to launch it last year which – probably to CEO Marty Drill’s relief – resulted in a grand total of zero canine attendees. But this year the concept was back with bells on. Productivity may have been a little down but team morale soared as the office was temporarily transformed into a doggy daycare.   

Here are some of the happy snaps that were captured on the day.

It might have been a moment of barking madness that led Marty to say 'yes' to Dogs in the Office Day but all overall, the team rated the day a howling success!
