In response to all the changes so many of us have experienced over the past few years, office environments have adapted to help keep us connected, productive and engaged! With our teams spending most of their time in the office, we take every opportunity to celebrate our furry officemates on those virtual days and the extra touch of joy and companionship they bring us.

Let’s meet them!

First, the barkers

They yell at the mailman and won’t stop poking their noses into your business. These coworkers can be a handful, but one look at those puppy-dog eyes makes it all worth it.

Percy, who missed the memo on social distancing, checks in on his owner.

Feeling overwhelmed? Riley believes in you!

Most of these coworkers have already adapted to the virtual lifestyle. Their conference call etiquette still needs some work, though.

Tillie is a great listener, even if she forgets to mute herself.

Archer, meanwhile, forgets he’s on camera. (Don’t worry, Kevin takes good notes.)

Some just can’t get down with the 9-to-5 schedule.

Someone forgot their morning coffee.

Why is the rug snoring?

Next, the catty ones

Not all of the new coworkers play fetch. Some enjoy the simpler things in life – lounging, chasing mice, and lounging again.

Charlie may not be a dog, but that never stopped him from enjoying a short walk (with appropriate social distancing!)

Where does one end and the other begin? Best not to think about it.

It’s important to dedicate a space specifically for work. These two seem to be on the same wavelength.

Finally, the oddballs

True innovation comes from bringing your true self to the workplace. Sometimes that means sticking out from the crowd.

Edgar Allan Poke is new on the job, looking spooked is a little natural.

They may be stubborn, but this team is all ears during conference calls.

We’re thankful for everything our people (and their furry companions) are accomplishing in keeping customers and communities connected. Learn more about what AT&T employees are doing at home and out in the field!
