Rockford & Layla
Head of Security & Head of Well-being
Rockford has been with the HR Dept since it was founded in 2013 and performs his role with the utmost diligence. He notifies the team immediately of any visitors and always ensures that they are properly vetted before allowing them to enter the premises. Rockford has a keen interest in HR and championing equality for animals in the workplace. He has his own Twitter account, Rockford@TheHRHound and would be delighted for you to follow him.
Layla joined the HR Dept as a pup in 2014. She started out as Trainee Security Assistant but it quickly became apparent, during her probationary period that security was not for her. This was mostly due to the fact that she loves absolutely everyone with no exception. Layla’s role was quickly changed to Head of Well-being and her days are spent mostly wagging her tail and trying to give everyone a friendly lick!
