Training Overview

June 24 is National Take Your Dog to Work Day. What does your policy say about pets?

June 24 is National Take Your Dog to Work Day. Do you have a policy already in place to prepare now for this event? Your colleagues may already have their pets roaming your workplace, and they likely want them to stay for more than one day. People and pets became more attached during the pandemic, causing many employers to expand their flexibility in allowing furry friends to accompany team members.

As recruiting and retention continue to be difficult, applicants and employees look for organizations that give extra perks, like bringing pets to work. Studies have found that dogs in the workplace help reduce stress in their owners and make work more satisfying for other employees with whom the dogs came in contact.
