Research shows that allowing ‘man’s best friend’ into the workplace has plenty of benefits for employees and the office environment.
Many scientific studies have concluded that the presence of pets can substantially reduce a person’s stress level in the workplace. Increased job satisfaction, team co-operation and morale have all been reported in employees that spend the workday with their pups.
It’s not always possible for companies to operate a Pup friendly policy where employees can take their Pups into work every day, Professional Pup by Pup Persona offers a solution to this so that the extensive benefits can be shared with Pup Owners and their colleagues.
So if you’re employees are the type of people that yearn to bring their pooch to the office, this might be a perfect pup solution! Here are the reasons why it could be good for all:
It will make employees happier it’s a fact!
Bringing Pups into work optimises the opportunity for exercise, giving not just the pup parent but their colleagues a reason to get out of the office and walk on their lunchbreaks. As part of the Professional Pup day there is an organized walk with Pup activities to ensure all colleagues participating have fun and move more. Research shows that on average in the UK employees sit for at least 7 hours a day, Pups are a great way from making sure they are more active and see the pleasure of a lunch time walk.
Research proves that playing with a Pup increases levels of stress reducing hormones oxytocin and decreases the production of the stress hormone cortisol. A study from the International Journal of Workplace Health Management found that access to Pups in the workplace was a calming and happy influence and reduced stress levels, where this was their own pup or others, and links to employee wellbeing.
