The House of Peroni is bringing a new wave of Italian style to Dublin this August

The House of Peroni returns to Dublin this summer for its fourth instalment, from Thursday, 22 August, until Sunday, 1 September, 2019. Part of a global House of Peroni series, which includes events in Barcelona, Paris, Stockholm, Santiago and Johannesburg, this year’s Dublin residency will see the Royal Hibernian Academy on Ely Place, Dublin 2, transformed into a stylish Peroni inspired experience, open to the public.

Earlier in the spring, Peroni Nastro Azzurro took nine creatives, known as the Creative Council, on a trip to Puglia in Italy, including three Irish creatives – Roisin Lafferty, multi award winning designer, Killian Crowley, chef de partie at Michelin-starred Aniar restaurant in Galway, and Kev Freeney, a creative director in Algorithm, widely known for their highly technical and creative productions. They were immersed in the style of Peroni along with the beauty of authentic Italian design, culture, architecture, food and craftsmanship, and will bring this inspiration back to Dublin to create this year’s House of Peroni residency experience.

New research reveals taking your dog to work increases job satisfaction by 22%

A new report ‘Taking Dogs into the Office’[1] sponsored by Purina Human-Animal Bond Studies sponsorship programme and conducted by researchers at the University of Lincoln (UK) shows that employees who often take their dog to work report 22% higher satisfaction with working conditions. This new research is the first to quantify the benefits and the impact of dogs in the office on work-related and dog-related outcomes. It measures parameters such as employees’ engagement and wellbeing or their control over decisions at work, and analyses how the bond between dogs and their owners can be reinforced by being together as well in the office.

Meanwhile, Nestlé UK & Ireland, Purina’s sister company, has been welcoming dogs into many of its offices since 2015, with its main offices in Dublin, Gatwick, and York now has over 100 four legged colleagues on the payroll. The company is committed to promoting dog-friendly workplaces to help more people and pets enjoy the benefits of spending more time together. To support more organisations to become dog-friendly, Purina has developed the Pets at Work Alliance, a framework for other companies to follow and enable their employees to bring their pets to work.
