Blizzard Entertainment, the game studio responsible for World of Warcraft and Starcraft, may be the most pet-friendly workplace in the world! Pets are welcome at their campus in Irvine, CA., and not just dogs. Of the 750 animals registered as workplace pets at Blizzard, 704 are dogs, but there are also 36 cats, 5 bunnies, 4 fish aquariums and a turtle!
Blizzard believes that animals in the workplace lowers stress and increases productivity, but the reason they allow pets at the office is because they just like being around them! Of course, the well-being of the pets is of utmost importance – pets must be registered, well-behaved and comfortable. They also state that all employees must be comfortable with the pet, but with 735 hanging around the campus, it seems unlikely that there have been any problems!
Pets are even provided with a special tag – once they choose whether to for the Alliance, or for the Horde!
Blizzard employees LOVE their corgis – they’re tied with terriers for top dog breed on campus!
Just another day in corgi paradise at @blizzard! 😛 Living @lifeatblizzard to the fullest! #forthealliance #forthehorde . . #puppy #puppiesofinstagram #puppiesofig #dog #dogsofinsta #dogsofinstgram #hot #summer #corgi #corgisofinstagram #corgisofig #corginstagram #lunarathecorgi #corgilove #corgicommunity #corgilife #pembrokewelshcorgi #corgination #blizzard #blizzlife
Disney World may have to relinquish it’s “Happiest Place On Earth” title – they don’t even allow dogs there.
It’s no wonder why Blizzard was named one of Fortune’s Top 100 Companies to Work For! Are you seeing all these dogs?!
