A craft brewing company in UK is offering staff a week of paid "paw-ternity leave" if they get a new dog. BrewDog is launching the Puppy Parental Leave programme to give employees time to bond with their new pet, whether they are welcoming a new puppy or taking in an older rescue dog. The Aberdeenshire brewery is a dog-friendly workplace, with around 50 office dogs, and has already had inquiries from staff about the scheme. The puppy parental leave will also be available at its new brewery in Columbus, Ohio, which is due to open in Spring 2017. BrewDog co-founder James Watt said: "It's not easy trying to juggle work and settle a new dog into your life, and many members of our crew have four-legged friends at home. "So we wanted to take the stress out of the situation and let our teams take the time they need to welcome their new puppy or dog into their family." "We always want to raise the bar when it comes to offering our staff the best possible benefits. At BrewDog, we care about two things above all else: People and beer. We also just really, really like dogs." The company hopes the scheme will give dogs time to settle into their new home and surroundings while their owner...

Mater Dei hospital employees who catch the bus to work can apply to receive up to €240 in the form of a public transport credit, the hospital announced today. Employees will get the credit when they give up their hospital parking permit. Those who sign up will receive a €20 credit on their tallinja card at the beginning of each month for the duration of one year, meaning they will only pay a maximum of €6 a month. The offer is open to 100 employees, with 34 having already taken it up. If employees do not fill up the remaining places, the hospital intends to make the transport credit available to relatives of patients hospitalised for a minimum of two weeks. Mater Dei CEO Ivan Falzon said commuting to hospital by bus made sense. “It’s cost effective and convenient," he said, adding that the collaboration with Malta Public Transport was "good news for our employees, our hospital and above all the environment.” The initiative follows a similar initiative MPT has in place with the University students' council, through which students can benefit from half-price bus tickets. “Following the success of the KSU Transport Fund, which saw many students opting for public transport...
