Four-legged friends roaming around the workplace could actually be good for your company, according to the first ever “PAWrometer” survey by Banfield Pet Hospital, a nationwide chain of veterinarians.
It found that just 22% of employees and 25% of HR policymakers work in pet-friendly environments—but those that do think it greatly improves the workplace.
Most surveyed in pet-friendly workplaces perceive the company policy as positive in every aspect. 67% say they think it increases productivity, 82% say they think it increases loyalty and 86% think it helps decrease employee stress levels.
