Benefits for Your Pet
Pets get to be in a new place, meet new people and see new things.
MORE TIME TOGETHER
Pets get more quality time with their owners.
Benefits for Employees
MORE INSPIRATION AND RELAXATION
Having pets nearby can keep an employee relaxed and happy – making work better and more enjoyable.
IMPROVED JOB SATISFACTION
Our employee surveys indicate that this program is a benefit for employees, and Human Resources believes it helps with retention.
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.
HEALTHY BREAK TIME
Dog owners spend their breaks walking and caring for their dogs, getting them on their feet. Even just taking a few minutes to play with a pet can provide a mental break and lower stress.
HEALTHY WORK-LIFE BALANCE
For many people, pets are a huge part of their lives. Companies that encourage pets in the workplace show that they care about their employees and the balance between worklife and homelife.
A recent study showed that employees who brought pets to work tended to show less signs of stress.
