Dog days are not just for summer at Butler/Till. The puppy, an 8-month-old named Gusto, comes to work each day with the company’s director of human resources, whose family is raising Gusto to become an assistance dog. He has a ton of personality and everyone just loves him,” says senior media planner/buyer Pauline Marsh, who leads the Butler/Till wellness committee. Our office park has two small ponds he loves to walk around. Walking is a high priority for many at Butler/Till. Employees take 15-minute walking breaks on a path inside the office—five laps is a half mile—or outdoors on paths through the Henrietta office park where Butler/Till is based. Forty people, roughly half of employees, paired up in teams for a four-week walking challenge last year. The Butler/Till Jills won Fitbits by walking 406 laps, or 40. 6 miles.

At 42 percent, the open rate on Butler/Till’s monthly health and wellness e-newsletter is double the industry standard of 20 percent for e-newsletters, Marsh.
