Increased job satisfaction on four legs and with a wagging tail 🐾
At DigitalCareer, we get a lot of joy from our office dog/Chief Happiness Officer, Barbaroux, but what is it exactly that a pet-friendly office can offer?
Lederne has written an interesting article about this topic where they highlight the following benefits of allowing pets in the workplace:
💭 Reduces worry: Pet owners avoid having a bad conscience about leaving their pet at home, and the dog or cat is supervised and cared for most of the day.
🧘 Better focus and health: Employees who take their dog for a walk during lunch get both mental relaxation and physical activity and can focus better on work for the rest of the day.
🗣 Promotes social interaction: Dogs and cats act as social connections between people and increase interaction between the employees in the office.
🤝 Increases loyalty: Employees who feel they have a good work-life balance are often more loyal to their employer and have a higher work ethic.
