Animals are often not only our best friends, but also fully integrated family members. Our colleagues at A1 Slovenia shared this thought when they made the shops pet friendly: Neither dog nor cat has to wait in front of the shop door in the summer heat. On the contrary, they are welcome in A1’s animal paradise. With fresh water and snacks, A1 not only pleases the pet owners but also our animal visitors. And also, “ahhhh” and “ohhhhh” sounds can be heard from other shop visitors :-)
What counts for our Slovenian customers, is also valid for Vip mobile’s customers in Serbia. A1 Slovenia not only lives this animal friendly approach in their shops, but also at work. Bringing pets to work is not merely allowed, this is desired. Because, pet companions greatly impact employee satisfaction and a positive working climate. By the way, most companions are dogs which well-behaved stick to the “Woof-tiquette”.
In our other Telekom Austria countries, pets are not allowed in the office, however, many animal friends can be found among the colleagues. TAG Stories strayed out, looked for and found animal fans: Just a friendly hint, if you are afraid of large spiders, than you better not look at the photos ;-)
A “dangerous catdog” from Serbia
Milisav or also called Mili does not care what name you call him. The rabbit of our colleague Katarina Trifunović (Vip mobile QA Reporting and Processes Associate) listens to all names given to him by his family members. Mili can also take it up against dogs! From the beginning, his family trained him the same way as the neighbour dogs with whom he also leaps around. When Mili, catlike, shreds the magazine of his mistress in tiny pieces he almost looks a little bit dangerous or when his mouth is pink of endulging in strawberries.Mili is a great listener, likes to cuddle and every evening plants a good-night kiss on Katarinas nose – so much about dangerous ;-)
»Since Mili chases cats and plays balls with dogs, that although I am the only woman in the team, I can do everything men can do. I can even eat as much as they can on a lunch break ;-)«
