Dogs At The Workplace

More and more employers are starting to realize the value of allowing dogs in the workplace.
Dogs have the power to increase employee engagement and inspire productivity. Even if this sounds unconvincing, take a look at the five surprising benefits of bringing dogs in your workplace.

Dogs Encourage Communication

Pets are generally common interest among many people and can be an icebreaker among the staff, especially newcomers and introverts. 

Team communication of the casual variety can be extremely productive in the long run.

Dogs Boost Employee Morale

Dogs are an instant mood booster and can help unwind the brain when the work is hectic and demanding due to deadlines and other kinds of work pressure.

Dogs Promote A Healthy Lifestyle

Many of us end up spending too much time sitting at work, forgetting about anything else. Bringing a dog can help.

Dogs make the owner have a healthier lifestyle, as they have to wake up early to take the dog at work, and also go to sleep on time. In the office, they take the dog outside for a walk a few times in the day, promoting good health.

From factories to cubicles to WiFi

Just after WW2, there was a rise in corporate headquarters and larger office spaces and cubicles. During this time, the 8-hour workday was established.

Then came the advancements in computers and technology that lead to remote workers of today. The internet and public WiFi allowed employees to do everything they would in their cubicle, but outside the office. They can also work all hours of the day.

Remote work is common

4.3 million people currently work from home in the United States at least half of the time, and this figure has grown by 150% in the last 13 years.  

Remote workers tend to have higher engagement rates and higher productivity levels. Once they switch to remote work, they rarely want to become office bound again.

Working from home

Before the pandemic, only 4 percent of the US workforce worked from home at least half the time. However, the trend of working from home had been gaining momentum for years.

It is estimated that within a couple of years, 30% of people will work from home multiple days per week.

Continued remote work

  • Before the pandemic, a lot of company management and leaders were skeptical regarding remote work. But the skepticism will go away because companies recognize that remote work does work.
  • The economic impact of the pandemic will likely force employers to cut costs. They may reduce their rent by letting workers work from home instead of layoffs.
  • Employers had to spend money on new technology and equipment to work from home - a departure from the norm.
  • Employees themselves are also spending more money to create better home offices.
