Pets At Work

  1. IMPROVED JOB SATISFACTION

    Our employee surveys indicate that this program is a benefit for employees, and Human Resources believes it helps with retention.

  2. MORE CO-WORKER INTERACTION

    Pets add another layer of interaction between co-workers, and otherwise quiet employees can become more engaged when talking to a co-worker about their pets.

  3. HEALTHY WORK-LIFE BALANCE

    Companies that encourage pets in the workplace show that they care about their employees and the balance between work-life and home-life.
