HMRC and The Dogs' Bollocks


I see that stressed HMRC staff at Elgin House in Edinburgh were invited to cuddle and stroke dogs to boost their wellbeing.

The Times reports that the “therapet” service, provided free of charge by the Canine Concern Scotland Trust (CCST), was booked for employees at an Edinburgh tax centre last month.

It is believed to be the first time “stress puppies” have been used in Scotland by a government agency.

During a 45-minute session, about 40 HMRC staff at Elgin House de-stressed by spending time with a border collie and a golden retriever. The HMRC said it was a “one-off” initiative and did not reduce employees’ productivity.

Did it work, and will dogs be brought along to tomorrow's Building Our Future event?

Tax does have to be taxing.

  1. Thought this was a joke at first.

    Let me start with a quote 'He that lies down with dogs, shall rise up with fleas.'

    Now, what leader of the pack dreampt this one up?
    Talk about treating the symptom rather than the cause.
    The majority of stress in HMRC is either caused directly or indirectly by the crap management. Be that by bullying, complete disregard for the Equality Act or just by their physical presence in the case of direct cause, indirect causes include e.g. the blind application and support of the Lean/Pacesetter bull, useless reporting and poor working conditions.
    Whilst there is no doubt in my mind that canine and even feline presence and contact can have a significant therapeutic effect on both the human and the animal, I have some issues with the example reported above.
    Yesterday a reference was made to dog eat dog in HMRC, somewhat ironically now I suppose, however, it is somewhat akin to a menagerie in there most of the time with sheep, slavering wolves, dinosaurs, twittering budgies, slthering snakes, lemmings, stoats and weasels, a howler monkey (no, that one left), bovines, not forgetting of course pelicans (WTF?}
    Well don't forget that the pelican is akin to the taxman in physical ability - they can both stick their bills up their arse!
    So stick with the pack, keep peeing against lamposts and howling at the moon and fetching those sticks.
    ROFL
    p.s. worked out where your new kennels will be, those of you that are not unleashed
    to freedom that is. Your masters will tell you tomorrow.
