7 Dog Friendly Offices for Your Business
Dogs are more than just pets. They are the UK’s favourite pet, and for many people, they’re part of the family.
If you feel guilty about leaving your furry friend at home while you head to the office, then there is a solution.
More and more companies are now recognising the benefits of allowing people to bring their dogs to work with them, and we wanted to showcase seven of our best offices that allow just that.
Let’s take a look.
Benefits of Working in a Pet-Friendly Office
There are many benefits of working in a dog friendly office, and here are three of the main ones.
- Reduced Stress & Anxiety – There are many reasons people love dogs. A key one is the fact that they chill us out and always bring a smile to our face. There is science behind this, as it has been proven that interacting with a dog significantly lowers cortisol levels, which is the hormone that creates stress. This makes them perfect for an office.
- Improved Employee Satisfaction – For anyone who loves dogs, being able to work in a place where they can play and enjoy some time with them is a big positive and can lead to better employee retention. For anyone who has a dog and may be looking at joining your business, this can be a big incentive for them to sign up.
- Enhanced Social Interactions – Dogs are a great icebreaker when it comes to providing a way to get your employees connecting and talking with each other. They make a great conversation starter and can help break down barriers between employees who may not otherwise interact. Over time, this will lead to better communication and camaraderie between workers which will benefit your business.
