Meet Olena Bezhenutsa, Assistant of our Barbus company President


Remote work may seem to be easy, but in fact it is harder than some of us could imagine😅 We asked our colleagues to share their experience of working remotely these days. Let’s take off 🙂

Meet Olena Bezhenutsa, Assistant of our Barbus company President.

📌 What are the changes you experienced when working remotely?
After I started to work remotely, only positive changes happened in my life. Here are some benefits:
➡️There is more time for work, I do not spend time to prepare for the office work, to come to office and then back home.
➡️The risk of contracting the virus in public transport is minimal, because there is no need to use it when working remotely.
➡️The only disadvantage seems to be working overtime. It is harder to keep balance between work and leisure, but, at the same time, my productivity has increased a lot.

📌What helps you be productive?
That is effective planning of my working hours and accurate performance of tasks.

📌 What helps you relax?
In such conditions, a cup of warm tea with milk and cinnamon helps me here.

📌 What do you think will change after returning to the office?
It will be difficult to wake up very early again.

📌 What would you wish your colleagues?
To all who feel discomfort when working remotely, I would recommend to clearly divide your working and free hours. Try to spend your free time with your family and friends and just relax. As an option, you may start a new hobby, play sports and enjoy some walks on fresh air.

Does your favorite cat suddenly start scratching everything around or, maybe, the dog is afraid of loud noises?

Such behavior can be a sign of stress. Pheromones for dogs and cats by our Barbus company partner, Ceva Sante Animale, will help your pets stay calm and abandon their naughty behaviour.

The products contain a copy of calming dog and cat pheromones, which are formed in mother’s body after the birth of puppies and kittens. And it is proven that these pheromones have a similar calming effect on adult pets, bringing them comfort and relief.



All dog owners know that when it comes to the season of rains, bathing is something you can’t skip after almost every walk. As puddles and dirt accompany us on usual routes more and more often.

To ensure comfortable bathing, you should choose a proper dog shampoo that will suit your pet’s needs.

VetExpert, our Barbus company partner, knows the secret to healthy skin and shiny hair. Shampoos by leading Polish brand carefully cleanse your pet’s skin and maintain proper pH level, while soft foaming agents and carefully selected ingredients improve the quality of its hair. Try it out and your four-legged pal will be greatful!

Dog owners are well aware that when a pet stays home alone, its behavior really depends on its traits of character and on how entertained it is so much!

After a nice walk and an active play, a four-legged pal is likely to sleep most of the time. Also, education plays an important role. If you have taught your dog to entertain itself and not to fool around, then you can stay calm.

But if your dog needs something to play with or you would like to arrange a snack for it while you are out, then toys by our Barbus company partner, KONG, are at your service!

Treat-dispensing, soft toys and balls – KONG has something your pet will definitely like and can help it not get bored when you are not at home.
