A marketing company in Minneapolis is offering an unusual benefit to owners of new pets.

According to the company's website, Nina Hale gives employees the ability to work from home for a week while they take care of their new dog or cat.

Part of embracing employee satisfaction as a business priority means recognizing important life events that happen outside of the office, said Nina Hale CEO Donna Robinson. If we want to continue to set the example as a top workplace, it is crucial to offer innovative benefits that help to preserve the work-life happiness of our employee owners.

Nina Hale has been awarded 16 top workplace honors in its 13-year history.
