With so many of us having dogs, last year we decided to have a trial run of bringing one dog in on a Friday to see how it would go. It was a huge success and not only did our furry pals enjoy the companionship during the day, but so did we. Did you know that studies show that dogs can help lower stress levels and improve employee job satisfaction when in the workplace? In addition, dogs help boost office morale and promote productivity. Sure, there’s a bit of distraction because who can ignore those cute faces and wagging tails, but there is so much more benefits to having a happier workplace with less stressed employees. Dog-friendly workplaces also encourage a healthier lifestyle, improve employee retention and appear more attractive to prospective employees.
