We believe that pets can foster a friendlier and happier workplace. They’re fun, playful and can have a positive influence on our work.
Some of the possible benefits of allowing employees to bring their pets to work are:
- It may improve employee satisfaction because they’re able to have their beloved pet at the workplace.
- It could theoretically reduce illness because pets are said to be stress-relievers. This could be true for both the pet owners and other employees.
- Having pets at work may allow employees to work a more standardized schedule or even more hours, as the stress of pet care will not be a concern.
- Pets could encourage employees to take breaks (to go for a walk, etc.), which is actually beneficial for the employee.
