Pets at Work on the Rise
We all know how wonderful our pets are. There is nothing like that welcoming wag, purr, chirp or oink as we walk through the door at the end of a long day. Somehow, it just makes your day better. And how much better would you feel if that pet could join you at work?!
It appears that many companies, 7%, according to the Society for Human Resource Management, have realized the impact pets have on their employees lives and are now welcoming them to the team. Companies that allow employees to bring their pets to work are reporting higher retention rates as well as increased moral and productivity. Studies also show that employees enjoy lower stress levels.
We hope that in the future more companies adopt this policy allowing everyone to enjoy a better work-life balance.
