Wagging in the Workplace: Benefits of Pets at Work

84.6 million U.S. households have pets, more than two thirds of the nation.

While it’s not the norm (an estimated 7 to 11 percent of U.S. pet owners are allowed to bring their pet to work), the future of pet-friendly policies looks promising. Research suggests pet-friendly workplaces can improve employee retention, boost morale and productivity, decrease stress, increase employee reaction, and more.
