An amenity that makes office life more accessible and desirable
People recently welcomed dogs into their home faster than perhaps ever before so it’s important for companies to consider offering support by providing a dog friendly office.
Let it show in your office
While allowing dogs in the workplace has previously been considered a benefit for employees, research has found a significant benefit for companies. In fact, one study found that people who often took their dog to work had significantly lower turnover intentions and stronger relationships with coworkers and managers compared to those who never took their dog to work.
Dogs and their people formed strong bonds while spending a great amount of time together during quarantine. Now people are wondering how their dog will react to their absence. A dog friendly workplace not only benefits your employees but it also helps prevent dogs from developing separation anxiety and keeps them from exhibiting undesirable behaviors.
Socializing dogs by providing them with opportunities to interact with other dogs and people in different environments has shown to be a critical component of their development and encourages good behavior.
Dog friendly offices not only save us money and time, studies have shown they also reduce stress, facilitate meeting new people, and increase job satisfaction.
There’s a reason why Amazon, Uber, and Airbnb have welcomed dogs into their offices for years. It’s good for business. Differentiate your company and build your brand by going dog friendly.
