National Bring your Dog to Work Day 🐕

It’s National Take Your Dog to Work day, at Lintott Control Systems we firmly believe it enhances the wellbeing of our colleagues.  Lintott formalised a scheme namely apted “Bring your Dog to Work” to enable workers to do just that !! Recognized for the first time in 1999, National Take Your Dog to Work Day celebrates the immense love for dogs, and also encourages adoptions. 

Having your dog at work with you all day may make it a little tough to get all of your tasks done, but there are always plenty of dog sitters! But having the dog with you may allow you to interact with your co-workers in a whole new way, as the dog is a great icebreaker.

We welcomed Jess in today, who even joined in with our “Lintott Laps” at lunchtime 😊🐕

Celebrating Reserves Day 2021

Lintott is very proud to continually support the Reserves, and as today is Reserves Day, we wanted to share with you and celebrate one of our own out in the field.

Production Mentor, Ben Sutton, is currently oversees protecting a British base with fellow British soldiers.  Reservists giving up their spare time to serve in the reserve forces, balancing their civilian life with a military career. The Reserve Forces make up approximately one sixth of our Armed Forces personnel and as such are vital to protecting the nation’s security at home and overseas.

The contribution they make to our Armed Forces often goes unrecognised, as such an annual reserves day was created to highlight and recognise the valuable contribution Reservists make to our Armed Forces.
