The pet-friendly workplace

May 23, 2008

Seems to be the cool thing in America now – Amazon and Google allow you to bring your pet into work.

In a recent survey by Dogster and Simply Hired, 66 percent of dog owners said that they would work longer hours if they were allowed to bring their dogs to work, another 32 percent of respondents said that they would take a pay cut to bring their dogs to work. Survey respondents believe that dogs help lower stress levels and build camaraderie amongst employees.

Was talking to John about this and he says “My pet is a swarm of bees” 🙂
