When it comes to animals, we LOVE them! Especially dogs. We have worked with dogs before on set and in the office, that’s right in the office. We love bringing our dogs to work and here are a few reasons why you should be too (if the boss says it’s OK obviously!)
When it comes to bringing pets to work there are things you must consider. Is the environment suitable for them? Are there any places they can go to do their business? And are there people with allergies to animals?
Bringing dogs to work are known to have it’s benefits so before you leave your dog at home why not see the positives effects your dog can bring to your workday.
- Dogs are known to help relieve stress and we have to say when things get busy here, we can get stressed. By just stroking a dog they help to reduce blood pressure, changes your physiologically by making you feel relaxed and they make you feel better.
- Promote social interactions- Dogs are social animals and love to go to new places and meet new people. They help to build and atmosphere of communication and teamwork as people can interact with the dog and talk to their owner which then helps to build relationships within the company. They can also help to improve morale and employee satisfaction.
- Improve a company image- Having a dog in the office helps with the company image by creating a calm and relaxed atmosphere, this will help the clients to relax and enjoy their visit to your company.
- Financially help employees- bringing a pet to work helps employees to eliminate the costs of doggie day care or a dog walker as these can be quite expensive. This will give the employee a positive view of the company and will be willing to stay.
