Innovation is part of your culture

Let it show in your employee benefits

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 employees 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 your employees are likely wondering how their dog will react to their absence after the office reopens. A dog friendly workplace is not only a benefit that comforts employees but it also can protect dogs from experiencing stress that can result in separation anxiety and undesirable behaviors.
