This Friday (June 23) is National Take Your Dog to Work Day.
A whopping 93% of dog owners want to bring their dogs to work and, employers are starting to listen. Since 2014 the percentage of companies allowing dogs in the office has increased by 125%.
And for good reason – having pets in the office makes employees three times more likely to form positive working relationships and perceive their company more favorably.
As a leader in medical insurance for pets, Trupanion recognizes the benefits of having pets in the workplace and since day one, dogs have always been a vital part of our offices. With more than two decades of experience creating a safe and productive environment for both employees and pets, Trupanion is recognized as one of the top workplaces that lead the nation in the best dog-friendly companies.
Regardless if your employer has a mandatory 3-day work-from-the-office schedule, or if you are still completely remote enjoying the benefits of WFH – it’s always a benefit to have your favorite friend by your side.
Here are 4 reasons to have a dog-friendly workplace according to Trupanion.
