As a beer producer and dog-friendly bar operator, BrewDog's love of pets is built right into its brand name—as such, it is now introducing some new pet policies for its employees.

Now, all BrewDog team members around the world will be able to take advantage of 'Puppy Parental Leave,' which grants staff a paid week off to spend with a new puppy. As BrewDog notes: "We’re not aware of any other American company giving a week’s leave to their staff to help build the bond between them and their dog."

Other companies around the world are experimenting with offering unique policies to employees. For instance, Coexist grants menstrual leave to female staff members, while Virgin lets its employees take unlimited holidays as an alternative to rules of annual leave that are inflexible and strict.
