HR DEPT.: 4-Legged Morale Boosters

from Employee Benefit Adviser

Do you want higher morale among your employees? How about a 93% improvement? Would less employee stress be worthwhile? A 93% betterment would be good, then. Better work-life balance would be great; yes? A 91% boost would be welcomed, as would — presumably — a 91% uptick in company loyalty. What can do all this? Adoption of pet-friendly workplace policies, according to a Mars, Inc./Banfield Pet Hospital survey of 1,000 employees and 200 HR decision-makers. And while animal-loving employees appreciate the guilt reduction achieved by pets-OK-in-the-workplace policies, they prefer pet-related paid time-off and bereavement leave.

"I have met many furry mascots when visiting Member-Firms across the country," said Joel Carson, GBA's Executive Director. "I learn a lot about the culture of a firm when I am greeted by a dog at the reception area."

"I have been bringing my dog, Dino, to work since he was a puppy and at 11 ½ years old, he is still ready every morning to get to work. He looks forward to seeing his friends at the office and helps maintain their walking challenge goals by motivating them to go for walks. He is a joy to have at the office," said Anthony "Tony" Fiorillo, P.E., S.I, Executive Vice President of ECS Limited.

Note that millennials, in particular, like pet-friendly policies. They influence their job searches and company loyalty. more
